Ministry of Culture Meeting

28 Jan

A number of festival organizers had a very productive meeting at the Ministry of Culture today. We met with Mr. Abass Abdulrazad Akbar, the General Manager of Art and Culture and made amazing strides in terms of finalizing the venue and collaborating with the ministry.

Mr. Nabil Musa, the Iraq Upper Tigris Waterkeeper went over recent projects he has taken part of this past year including producing a short-film on Iraq’s vulnerable waterways and Climate Action Day. We discussed the possibility of having condensed festivals in local villages and conducting environmental-awareness workshops. Hopefully this is the beginning of a strong relationship with the Ministry of Culture and the Green Music and Arts Festival!
