Support Traditional Arts in Oman.

Ministry of Heritage and Culture
Objectifs clefs de la mesure:

This policy aims to preserve Omani traditional art, revive it and protect it from contemporary art globalization considering it as a special legacy of the country. The Sultanate pays great attention to this policy through providing financial support to the folk art bands, organizing local competitions and involving them in international events.

 The Ministry of Heritage and Culture is providing material support to teams of folk art, recording their products, display  it in the media (print and broadcast) and organizing events and competitions on a regular basis such as "a festival of Omani song," which is held every two years. The ministry also gives an opportunity to folk groups to participate in international forums continuously to support their varied shows, encourage them to continue innovation and excellence. The Sultanate believes that creating such opportunities is very important to preserve the Omani heritage, capacity building, maintenance and transfer of culture, generate income and employment opportunities.
