The Culture Resource (the Lebanon-based NGO Al Mawred Al Thaqafy), in partnership with KKV (Norway) and in collaboration with DABATEK, Think Tanger and Cinémathèque de Tanger is organising a multi-disciplinary REDZONE Festival in Tangier, Morocco, from 3 to 6 October.
Taking place on Tangier's streets and and in its cultural spaces, the annual festival has prepared a rich programme that includes performing arts, music, visual arts, urbanism and cinema, in addition to workshops, discussions and a standing invitation to meet the other.
"Migration and the City was chosen to be the main theme for this year as it is timely in the regional and global contexts and it is especially relevant to Tangier as a transit point that witnessed human migratory experiences throughout history. With this theme, the festival aims to stimulate dialogue on the right of freedom of movement, the meanings of migration and exile, and the challenges of uprooting," the organisers explained in their official press release.
They added the festival advocated a critical approach to contemporary issues and featured artistic works that focus on themes related to freedom of expression in arts and culture.
