Algeria/ 8.4 Amateur arts, cultural associations and civil initiatives  

8.4.1 Amateur arts and folk culture

Studies concerning the number of people involved in cultural centers and clubs do not exist. The lack of cultural facilities in some areas makes participation in cultural activities very limited. Thus hobbies in all forms of art remain the primary source of amateur cultural activities. Recreational groups receive support pursuant to the provisions of the Associations Law. Official attention is given to amateur performers during amateur festivals such as the National Festival for Amateur Theatre and the Amateur Film Festival.
