The Arts in Marrakech Festival 2007

From November 23 to 29, 2007, the best in contemporary African Photography will be showcased at the Arts in Marrakech (AiM) Festival. Not only will there be photography exhibitions and film art screenings throughout the seven days, but also literary talks, readings, and a special screenwriters' forum. The event opens at the Museum of Marrakech, with an exhibition of South African Photography. With the expansion of worldwide cultural events such as these, it seems that appreciation is growing for not only the photographic image, but the unique ways in which a world of different perspectives can be expressed.

Marrakech is renowned for its exotic beauty, even among Native Morrocoans. Participating exhibition spaces include Riad El Fenn, a luxury hotel, and Kssour Agafay, a restored 16th-century townhouse turned member’s club, Dar Cherifa cultural center, the Royal Theater and the Marrakech museum. Participating art galleries include Rê, 127, and Light.

Access to all events is included with registration. Forms can be submitted via email, or you can register during the festival (if you just happen to be in that neck of the woods come late November). Registration is € 100 (or $146).

AiM's website advises early registration, since late November is a peak travel time for Morrocco. A list of recommended hotels can be viewed online. Click here to view and to download a registration form.
