ISLAMABAD: The premier national arts body in the country will host a cross-country cultural caravan which spans Pakistan and neighbouring China.

This was announced by Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) Director General Jamal Shah in a news conference on Thursday.

Shah said that the PNC will be holding three grand events this month including the CPEC Cultural Caravan Festival, an artists convention and the closing ceremony of the ninth national art exhibition. He hoped that these events would leave a significant cultural impact at home and abroad.

Shah said that the government had recently approved the Project Concept-II for the National Film Academy and has provided Rs55 million to conduct a feasibility study and a design competition for the academy. Moreover, the government has approved another five PSDP projects including the National Centre of Excellence for Performing Arts, upgrading technical facilities for film projection, building a restaurant along with a souvenir shop at PNCA, installation of a multilingual multimedia information system for visitors of the National Art Gallery and the open air theatre.
