In Al-Ahsa, eastern Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Ministry of Culture, represented by the Theater and Performing Arts Authority, inaugurated the first phase of the field visits project under the motto ‘Meeting Practitioners of Theater and Folk Arts’.
The project will stay in Dammam for two days before moving to Hafr Al-Batin, where it will target individual performers, organisations and groups practising theatrical and folk arts, and folk arts business and production fans.
The Theater and Performing Arts Authority aims from the project to register teams and practitioners as for-profit and non-profit entities.
It also seeks to contribute to obtain a license for practitioners in the performing arts, and to benefit from the support services of the Theater and Performing Arts Authority.
Theater and Performing Arts Authority is witnessing intense activity. A few days ago, the Authority, in cooperation with the Quality of Life Program, launched the “Theater and Performing Arts Incubator” initiative.
The initiative aims to develop promising talents in Saudi Arabia and activate the entrepreneurship system in the theater industry and performing arts.
It should be noted that last March, the Theater and Performing Arts Authority launched an initiative to develop the third (non-profit) sector in the theater sector.
the Authority sought to register all practitioners of the theater sector and other performing arts within the third sector, so that they can benefit from the support directed to this sector.
