Cultural Initiatives in North Africa and the Middle East
Project: MADRASSA, Regional Training Program in Curatorial Practices
Type: Training– Residence
Organization: Atelier de l'Observatoire
MADRASSA is a program of residencies, meetings and trainings in contemporary curatorial practices in the MENA region. The participants benefit from a seminar in Casablanca, which combines training, meetings, and practical courses, with the aim of enhancing their personal and collective projects, which are later proposed to various international partners. Following the seminar, participants take part in a one-month residency in the art spaces in partnership with MADRASSA, whether in Egypt, Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia. The aim is to conceive and produce an exhibition or an artistic project with the local artistic scene, while being accompanied by an established curator.
