Azerbaijan/ 8.4 Amateur arts, cultural associations and civil initiatives  

8.4.1 Amateur arts and folk culture

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and partly, the Azerbaijan Trade Union Confederation, support the amateur arts and people's creativity via a network of cultural houses, clubs, parks and relevant centres which are financed by the state or by large enterprises. Cultural clubs and houses of culture provide a good background and conditions for functioning of club circles, amateur art groups and unions, clubs of interests and amateur unions, amateur art circles and collectives, technical creation courses and classes, children's circles and collectives.
