National Committee prepares launch of ARTifariti 10th edition

Shaheed El-Hafed, October 28, 2016 (SPS) – The national committee in charge of the organization of the 10th edition of the cultural event ARTifariti held Thursday a meeting chaired by Minister of Culture, Khadija Hamdi, at the ministry.

The meeting addressed the preparations to launch this cultural event to be held from October 29 to November 12, in the Wilaya of Boujdour under the theme “Beyond Future,” in the presence of Sahrawi and different nationality painters and sculptors who will exhibit their works introducing Sahrawi art and culture that the Moroccan occupier tries to erase.

ARTifariti is an appointment with artistic practices as a tool to vindicate Human rights; the right of the people to their land, their culture, their roots and their freedom. It is an annual encounter of public art to reflect on creation, and society, and a point of contact for artists interested in the capacity of art to question and transform the reality.

ARTifariti wants to promote intercultural relations, fomenting the interchange of experiences and skills between local artists and international artists from other parts of the world; to contribute to the international diffusion of the Sahrawi reality, causing a reflection from the world of Art and the Culture through direct knowledge, and promote the development of these people through their cultural patrimony.
