Saudi Cultural Vision
The Saudi Ministry of Culture published the Cultural Vision for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the 27th March 2019. This document provides the framework which the Ministry of Culture will adopt in support of the Kingdom’s cultural sector.
The document identifies three central objectives:
Promoting culture as a way of life
Enabling culture to contribute to economic growth
Creating opportunities for international cultural exchange
These objectives are closely aligned with the three strategic pillars of Vision 2030, which are to create a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation.
The Ministry will seek to realize the cultural sector’s potential, bringing all aspects of the Kingdom’s rich cultural heritage into the daily life of Saudis – it will enrich the lives of the people of Saudi Arabia.
Culture is a broad term, and the Ministry has identified 16 priority sub-sectors where it will focus its work. The intention of this is to create a Ministry which can effectively champion causes across the sector. The Ministry will also create 11 new bodies, reporting to the Ministry which will focus on these sectors.
