The Arab Image Foundation (AIF), the Association for Arabic Music (IRAB), the Arab Center for Architecture (ACA) and the Cinémathèque de Tanger are partners in this initiative aiming to advocate for the preservation of modern cultural heritage – with an emphasis on photography, music, architecture, video and film – in the Middle East and North Africa.
As they struggle for sustainability, cultural heritage actors in the MENA region are seeking to raise awareness of the need to support and improve the preservation of modern cultural heritage among political and institutional sectors and the general public. The project partners have come together to mobilize for joint action to impact policies and legal frameworks, and to generate political commitment towards modern cultural heritage.
Through the creation of a network of professional bodies from the MENA region, the project seeks an exchange of experience, the pooling of expertise and the elaboration of strategies for joint advocacy actions. By organizing various activities such as trainings, national and regional meetings, film screenings, exhibitions, and the publication of articles, the partners in the project will contribute to making the modern cultural heritage of the Arab world more extensively preserved and widely accessible.
