His Highness Prince Badr Bin Abdullah Bin Farhan Al Saud, Minister of Culture of Saudi Arabia, announced today the issuance of the first two licenses to ever be granted to cultural education institutions in the Kingdom.
Music Home and aDawliah Music Training Center became the first institutions in the Kingdom to be granted an official license to practice musical training. Both institutions will offer music programs and talent development courses for individuals of all ages.
“It is important to issue official licenses to educational institutions in the creative field, as this ensures that they meet international standards and adheres to local regulations,” said CEO of the Music Commission, Mohammed Al Mulhem. “Musicians and amateurs can benefit from a range of courses offered by the centers to develop their instrument practice and develop their talents,” he added.
The licenses are issued by the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture. This comes as part of the Ministry’s efforts to support artists and creatives through providing talent development programs, establishing specialized educational institutions in the cultural and creative fields, and regulating the cultural education sector.
The Ministry of Culture also plans to launch an electronic platform in April, where creative education institutions and academies will be able to submit license requests online.
Supported by Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 strategic framework and Quality of Life Program, the Ministry of Culture is leading a cultural transformation to develop a rich ecosystem that nurtures creativity, unlocks the economic potential of the sector and unleashes new and inspiring forms of expression.
