In light of Rabat’s position as the “Islamic world’s cultural capital for 2022,” UNESCO director-general Audrey Azoulay is expected to visit Morocco on February 28. Azoulay will visit the capital for three days.
Azoulay’s visit to Rabat was the result of an invitation from Morocco’s Minister of Culture, Mehdi Bensaid.
UNESCO’s director-general is expected to hold several meetings with Moroccan officials, including Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita.
Rabat was chosen as the “Islamic world’s cultural capital for 2022” by The Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ISESCO).
As part of her visit, Azoulay is reportedly planning to meet with Mehdi Qotbi, President of the National Foundation of Museums, and will visit the Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rabat.
