Cultural center


Cultural centers, also known as cultural houses or community cultural centers, are spaces, within a specific community, dedicated to the permanent development of culture, through the preservation, transmission and promotion of various artistic expressions.

In short, it is a place whose goal is for the community to get involved in activities that promote culture. These are generally public and open to the general public; In the establishment, activities such as workshops, conferences, courses are offered and, in some cases, there are libraries for the free investigation of those who go to it.

The cultural houses are characterized by being located in buildings of historical richness for the region in which they are geographically located or, well, by the peculiarity of the structure of the building where they are located (normally, the State commissions a prominent architect to design the center design); the dimensions of the centers can vary. These can have a large number of spaces dedicated to particular activities, such as toy libraries, auditoriums and audiovisual projection rooms, as well as rooms for plastic arts, music, dance and theater workshops.

The topics, likewise, tend to focus on the regional aspect, since the purpose is to preserve and spread their own culture.

It is the obligation of the State to guarantee the population free access to intellectual and artistic recreation, so these points must be found in each country, as a sample of the development of which they have been a part since its inception. Similarly, these lend themselves to the adequate training of young people in topics related to the humanities and sciences.
