This document outlines the importance for the Folk Arts in Egyptian culture and society. Fathy describes this importance through two angles regarding the impact of the institution on the local culture. One angle is an ethnographic impact on society, and the other is a positive impact through an implementation of a policy for growth and activities pertaining to the concept of the preservation for artistic values. Fathy elaborates on these two ideas.
