caravane tighmert 2015-2017 / by Carlos Perez Marin

   In 2015 we decided to organise a festival in the oasis of Tighmert, Guelmim, with our friends of the "Association des Amis du Festival Caravane Tighmert". We believed (we still believe) that there is a lot of contemporaneity in oasian cultures and also that visual and performing artists could come to create new contemporary works based on traditional culture. We though we could create a laboratory for contemporary oasian culture, it didn't matter if Tighmert was far away from Moroccan culture centres, if we were in the desert, if we had no money and no institutional support because thanks to people's generosity, donating money or welcoming artists, we have been organising this event since 2015 and we still will... It is our small contribution to contemporary creation in Morocco.

   These are the artists that have come to Tighmert in the last three years, thanks a lot for your implication and your love for the oasis:
