In September 2018, we (Abdeljalil Saouli, Gilles Aubry and myself) started to work on an artistic project in Moulay Bouchta Al Khamar, a village situated 75 km north of Fez.

Le 18 Marrakech scheduled a very interesting program related to WATER (in the framework of Kibrit). As we shared some topics and some artists participated also in Beyond Qafila Thania, we decided (with Platform Harakat) to match our agendas in order to visit the Drâa valley in Zagora (Morocco) and discover its heritage concerning water, architecture and caravans.

There was also a round table with artists and researches on the experience during Beyond Qafila Thania project.

culture strategy for guelmim oases by Carlos Perez Marin

Last week we handed a proposal over to authorities on contemporary culture in the oasis of Guelmim (made through Marsad Drâa and Caravane Tighmert). A program that authorities asked us at a meeting last July . It will take a few more weeks to know if they accept the challenge of bringing contemporary culture to those little paradises that are still the oases.


A big thank you to all the artists for trusting us and for their engagement in this adventure.


This culture strategy has four aims:
- to provide access to multidisciplinary artistic training for the oasis population.
- to develop a cultural network in the province (which will allow a better social cohesion).
- to encourage contemporary creation, based on oasis cultures.
- to promote contemporary oasis cultures at regional, national and international levels.
