Algeria/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.4 Direct professional co-operation

Algeria does not have a specific program for coaching and training foreign artists. However, audiovisual courses are regularly organized by Algerian Radio and Television for technicians coming mainly from sub-Saharan countries.

Algerian artists participate in the activities of the Cultural Center of Algeria in Paris and in other MOC activities abroad. In cinema, they are also supported by the Cultural Influence Algerian Agency in their creations abroad. The Agency’s main mission is to design and implement programs of Algerian culture abroad, and contribute to hosting cultural events domestically.

Direct exchange between Algerian and foreign cultural institutions has flourished in recent years. For example, in 2006 the "Theater of Exchange Franco-Algerian Paca" permitted the establishment of a year-long program exchange between the Algerian National Theatre (ANT) and the "La Criée" theatre of Marseille. Algerian museums are also increasing partnerships with foreign museums. In 2008 the museum of Cherchell commenced a program to restore some of its articles through a partnership between Algerian archeology students and German students.
