Mapping culture across Saudi Arabia and MENA:

As a leading cultural think tank in the region, the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture (Ithra) wants to promote a greater understanding of how cultural and creative industry performance is evolving regionally and nationally in KSA.

Ithra has collaborated with The Economist Intelligence Unit to develop “Culture in the 21st century” report that presents the current state of cultural offering and consumption in the MENA region. In addition, Ithra has developed a report titled “Saudi Arabia cultural and creative landscape mapping” which introduces a KSA CCI index and assesses the CCI landscape across different dimensions and sub-sectors in Saudi. It has also developed a very special on the impact of COVID on the cultural industries.
