Culture Resource (Al Mawred Al Thakafy), along with the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Morocco’s Hassan II University and the Cultural Policy Department of Hildesheim University in Germany, signed a trilateral memorandum of understanding to launch a new masters degree programme in cultural policy and cultural management.

According to the Culture Resource's press release, the masters programme is the first of its kind given by an educational institution in the Arab region.

The two-year program will be hosted by the University of Hassan II, starting in September 2015, targeting students from the Arab region.

The Culture Resource states that details about the programme, admissions requirements, procedures, and scholarship opportunities will be announced soon.

Since its founding in 2003, the Culture Resource has been playing an active role in strengthening the field of cultural management in the Arab region. In 2005, Mawred started cultural management workshops, each time gathering the attendees for 3-5 days sessions held in different Arab countries.

Mawred is the first institution to translate documents and research completed by international art managers into Arabic, while also making the works accessible on their website.
