Called « Children Palace » in Arabic and created in 1994, this cultural centre, which stands out with its stunning modern architecture, offers a number of facilities such as a theatre, a library, an art gallery and a hall dedicated to cultural and artistic events. Kasr El Atfal’s priority is to promote art and culture awareness by encouraging children and young people to practice reading, to watch high quality movies and documentaries, in order to make them discover and appreciate the beauty and importance of art.
Kasr El Atfal is a space where children and young people of the Social Welfare Institutions are engaged to discover and practice various artistic trainings such as drawing, music, dance, theatre, quality movies watching and many other ways to open their minds to the marvels of art and culture.
The Centre name truly reflects its paramount assignment, that is to be the children’s Dream Palace.
Under the supervision of highly skilled professional art teachers specialised in music, singing, theatre and drawing, Kasr Al Atfal includes the following social clubs:
- Storytelling club
- Environment club
- Chess club
- Folklore club
- Drawing club
- Music club
- Theatre club
- Singing club
Psychodrama therapy programs are implemented by way of Kasr Al Atfal’s events and cultural and artistic conferences in order to improve its beneficiaries behaviour.
Through its cultural awareness raising activities, Kasr Al Atfal stands up at the vanguard of education and human development enhancement.
A memorial stone in tribute to the regretted «Tawfic Al Jarudi», a generous Dar Al Aytam benefactor, adorns the entrance to the Centre main hall.
