Promoting culture in all its diversity
Maroc Telecom fosters all forms of cultural and artistic expression, which enable communities to thrive and develop sustainably.
It supports music, cinema, theater, publishing, and other sectors. It actively supports more than ten major music and audiovisual festivals throughout the Kingdom every year, some of which having an international dimension.
Maroc Telecom acquired 38 works of leading Moroccan artists including paintings and sculptures, assisted in its choice by the advice of the Ministry of Culture, with which it signed a partnership.
Under this partnership, Maroc Telecom funded the recording of an anthology of popular Moroccan music in four volumes on CD-ROM.

Local, national and international artists perform in front of an audience that reaches, cumulatively, over three million spectators. strong>Young artistic talents
Every summer, "Young Talent Nights", which are held under the Jawla festival, are an opportunity for young artists to perform on stage and make themselves known to the Moroccan public. To date, more than 180 of these evenings have enabled new stars to perform in nine entertainment villages: Jawla, Saidia, Nador, Al Hoceima, Martil M'diq, Tangiers, Rabat, Casablanca and Agadir.
Maroc Telecom also supports the current Moroccan music scene during the Generation Mawazine contest. This artistic competition enables the discovery of musical talent in three categories: Rap and hip-hop, fusion, and electronic music.
A partnership with the cultural season of the French ‘Cultural) Institutes in Morocco makes it possible to implement professional training sessions and a new national program for creative residencies for young Moroccan artists.
