The Municipality of Ghuraifa, located in Wadi al Hayaa district south of Libya, has kicked off its first festival for heritage and arts under the slogan “Our stories, our heritage, our history,” with the participation of interested associations, organizations, and folklore groups and bands in the region.

The opening ceremony took place last Saturday in which a large host of special guests were present, including the Ghuraifa's Mayor and an array of local officials and dignitaries of the region.

Besides the cultural performances, the festival featured a collection of paintings that depict the grandeur and nobleness of the region and its adherence to the cultural heritage.

Participants expressed their pleasure and support for such activities and stressed the importance of these events to spotlight the cultural diversity that characterizes the region and inspire the youth of this generation.
