Turkey’s Culture and Tourism Ministry will support theaters, the most affected sector from the coronavirus pandemic, with nearly $2 million in 2021, it said on Monday.
According to a statement, the support package was increased by three-and-a-half times this season compared to the 2018-19 season.
The package will be extended to 451 private theaters, it said.
In 2019-2020, private theaters received some 6.1 million Turkish liras (nearly $820,000) in support.
The ministry will introduce new works of local playwrights this season for art enthusiasts both physically and digitally.
