Rabat - There is hardly any "program" that does not include an entry about culture. For some reason, however, most give the impression that culture is limited to "spaces" in which youth can express themselves through a limited number of performance art forms, specifically, theatre, singing and the plastic arts. None talks of dancing, for instance. Very few addressed museums, archeology and the conservation of the historical heritage in a systematic manner specifying how to fund the sector. Culture is not perceived as the socioeconomic factor that identified and expresses the aspirations, expectations, assessments of the conflicts that characterize the living conditions of the community that is inherently diverse, multiple, and dynamic.
