HRH Princess Lalla Meryem Receives President of ‘Kennedy Center’ and President of its International Committee

The two American cultural figures are visiting the Kingdom to attend the “Arts Gold Medals” international awards ceremony, scheduled to take place in Marrakech on Monday January 23.

Organized by the Kennedy Center, this ceremony will be an opportunity to award gold medals to Moroccan artistic figures in recognition of their efforts and contributions to the arts worldwide.

The “Kennedy Center”, which opened in 1971, is considered the national cultural center of the United States. It also places great emphasis on foreign productions as part of its artistic programming.

Located in Washington, D.C., the “Kennedy Center” is the result of a public-private partnership. It has units dedicated to arts education, with a mission to encourage the development of the arts, as well as cultural exchange between the United States and the rest of the world.
