In January of this year the first of an annual artist residency took place in around the Mouseem/pilgrimage event in a small town in northern Morocco called Sidi Ali. The one week program was a loaded source of inspiration and an abundance of material that fed the work of the small group of artists who gathered for the residency.
Organized by Culture Vultures, a Moroccan registered arts and cultural company, this project is an opportunity for art practitioners to take part in a rich program, to gain an insight into popular Sufism in Morocco and to take away a rich palette of inspiration to feed into their art practice.
This mail comes as an encouragement for artists from a broad range of mediums and practices to make an application for the residency in January 2014. Please forward this on to those who you think would benefit from such an opportunity. Note that the deadline for the next AiR Sidi Ali is 10th of September 2013.
The link will lead you to information about how to apply, a breakdown of the itinerary, the price and details of what is to be expected. http://culturevulturesfez.org/air-sidi-ali/
