The cultural manifesto published by the Royal Commission for AlUla captures the global scale of this major project.
The French Agency for AlUla Development (Afalula) is delighted to announce the publication of the cultural manifesto drafted by the Royal Commission for AlUla, outlining this project’s broad cultural endeavours and unveiling the principal museums that will be constructed over the next ten years in this unique region, which is part of UNESCO’s global heritage. Under the 10 April 2018 bilateral agreement between France and Saudi Arabia, the French Agency for AlUla Development, will, in close partnership with the Royal Commission, co-build each stage of this major cultural programme and will have a role in the productions that stem from it.
Chairman of the French Agency for AlUla Development, Gérard Mestrallet stated:
The cultural manifesto published by the Royal Commission for AlUla captures the global scale of this major project.” By signing the 10 April 2018 treaty, France has seized the opportunity to contribute to an unparalleled project, something the French public as a whole will be able to appreciate through the “AlUla Wonder of Arabia” exhibition at the Arab World Institute. All of the know-how France has always committed to culture will find in AlUla fertile ground for expression, an incomparable wealth of inspiration, and resources that lend themselves to work of the highest quality.
