Interconnected in Culture for a Stronger Ecosystem

Programme Overview

All-Around Culture Programme aims to foster a vital cultural ecosystem as an enabling environment for social and economic inclusion of young people in seven countries across the Arab region including Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, and Libyan and Syrian communities in these countries.

Co-funded by the European Union, All-Around Culture is a collaborative and interconnected programme which consists of 5 components implemented over a 4-year period, to:

  • Support the stability of 36 cultural entities and foster their investment in sustainable collaboration to facilitate and increase access to culture within their contexts;
  • Promote youth-led cultural and civic initiatives through 32 research and 24 production grants along with collaborative laboratories to support community-based and contextual artistic production;
  • Create partnerships and exchange knowledge among 60 cultural entities from the Arab Region and Europe;
  • Practice ongoing knowledge exchange in order to connect diverse learning needs throughout the programme, as well as share ecosystem based approaches and practices with a wider community; and
  • Establish a Platform advocating for open access to culture and for actions to ameliorate the working environment for cultural and artistic actions in the countries of intervention.
