Tunisia/ 8.2 Cultural consumption and participation  

8.2.2 Policies and programmes

Promotion of cultural access and participation is based on the principle "culture for all". Cultural activities and programs benefit from this approach through several mechanisms including:

-Symbolic entrance fee or participation in artistic, cultural or heritage activities (example: nominal entrance fees to summer festivals, free entry to museums, and the nominal cost to join clubs in houses of culture ...)

- Direct and indirect support to the cost of cultural products (music - books- movies – operation costs of art gallery…)

- Periodic campaigns to promote cultural practices, for example reading

-Acquisition of equipment for shared usage in houses of culture

-Up to 35% discount in the price of plays tickets for students and teachers

-Exemption from the added value tax of cultural products (especially the book)
