Cultural Houses (Qossour el Saqafa el Gamahiria)
Cultural Palaces are Cultural spots principally created with a new vision for the dissemination of culture education in the villages, communities and the small municipalities with limited corporate powers. These spots are of big importance in the rural areas where the families cannot reach a decent culture source due to poverty, lack of communication with big cities around and lack of transportation means. In parallel, those palaces use to play a strategic role in the promotion of sustainable development through audiovisual communication and other cultural services.
