During this talk, Wassyla Tamzali presents her projects and engagements, notably Les Ateliers Sauvages, which is a space for artistic residencies and creations that she founded in 2015, in Algiers.
This talk takes place in the framework of the project travelling narratives. It is the opportunity to have an overview on her dynamics and approach in the Algerian artistic scene.
The event also includes open interactions and exchanges with the public.
Travelling narratives is a regional program of art and research that aims at encouraging interactions between cultural operators in Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Mauritania and Libya.
Through the organization of a cycle of residencies, exhibitions, screenings, meetings, workshops and conferences, this project strives to cross and connect micro-stories from North Africa in order to discover and disseminate endogenous stories of these territories and to collectively imagine new social and cultural utopias from these alternative narratives.
Travelling narratives is supported by AFAC – The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, the Goethe-Institut Marokko, the Institut Français du Maroc, the Centre Jacques Berque and the Ministry of Culture and Communication in Morocco. The program is carried out in partnership with Townhouse, Les Ateliers Sauvages, مؤسسة ورق للفنون – WaraQ art foundation and the cultural space Diadie Tabara Camara.
