Applicants are invited to submit proposals for a series of thematic workshops focusing on mobility from a (post-) colonial perspective and on the concept of “Houdoud” (borders).
The call is part of the project “The fertilization of knowledge through the meeting of art and research » that aims to create links between artistic practices and academic research in the humanities and social sciences and to bring out innovative approaches to contemporary cultural phenomena.

It is open to artists and researchers under 35 years old who are based in Morocco:
