|Czech Republic, Iranian foundation discuss holding bilateral cultural programs||
Holding bilateral cultural programs was discussed during a Tuesday meeting in Tehran between Czech Chargé d’Affaires Petr Stepanek and Niavaran Artistic Creation Foundation Director Seyyed Abbas Sajjadi.
“We are quite familiar with the rich art and culture of Iran and I hope bilateral cultural programs will be organized by Iran and the Czech Republic,” Stepanek said in the meeting, which was held at the foundation.
“The Czech people are also familiar with Iranian cinema and we are prepared to organize Iranian film festivals in our country,” he added.
He also said that his colleagues are ready to organize festivals of Czech artists in Iran in a significant step to strengthen cultural ties between Iran and his country.
A solo concert by Czech violinist, which will be performed at the foundation’s Niavaran Cultural Center in summer, will be the starting point for the mutual cultural cooperation.
“The Niavaran Cultural Center has significant capacity for organizing programs outside of Iran,” Sajjadi said.
“Thus, the center has established relations with foreign embassies and cultural organizations and institutes to create opportunities to organize meaningful cultural programs,” he added.
