CAIRO – 19 August 2018: According to Ahmed Awwad, head of the Cultural Palaces Authority, nine recently inaugurated palaces will bring cultural events to secluded, underprivileged areas in Egypt, “endorsing positive traditions and percepts and preserving cultural heritage and Egyptian identity.”
Gamal Abdel-Nasser Cultural Palace in Assiut, which provides a 145-seat theatre, is among the inaugurated palaces. The entity offers numerous spacious areas, a library and a small museum for Nasser.
A palace was also established in Abraq, in the Red Sea governorate, and an additional provision is currently under construction in Ras Hadraba.
Several other entities are prepared in Al-Adessat and Hod Al-Remal in Luxor. Additionally, renovation works are taking place at existing palaces in Al-Bahr Al-Azam, Belbais, Sharm-El-Sheikh and Kafr Al-Sheikh.
The inauguration of the nine palaces comes within the framework of the Ministry of Culture to renovate cultural, artistic and historical entities in Egypt.
