Fifth Edition of Digital Marrakech Media Art Morocco (MAM)

Kicked off this January, and running until May 2016, the Media Art Morocco symposium on media arts culture is organising the fifth edition of Digital Marrakech Media Art Morocco (MAM).

The five-month event will tackle the theme of media arts culture, namely the ability to use media art tools (digital film and video, independent cinema, digital 3D mapping, graphic design and so on) to create interesting and experimental works, and will focus on how the creation of media arts should be presented and how a visual language is developing as a language of expression and personal transformation.

Workshops, master classes, lectures and exhibitions will take place in several cities across the Kingdom, including Marrakech and Agadir.

The events will be mentored by a team of experts and speakers, most notably Moroccan director Hicham Lasri, Dutch curator Nathanja van Dijk, American writer Michelle Medina and Palestinian artist Kamal Al Jafari, among many others.

The opening session, held last week in Agadir, was led by Moroccan documentary filmmaker Ali Essafi, on the theme “Is memory soluble in art? Archiving Memory”.

The entire MAM programme will be online soon.

The project is open to professional and non-professional media artists who are aiming to learn new ways of experimenting, developing stories, using digital tools, and picking up post-production techniques, as well as shaping their critical project assessment skills, and creating and elaborating a screenplay for alternative and independent videos, digital artworks or video installations.

MAM’s objective is to strengthen interest in media arts among new, emerging and established artists in Morocco and in the Arab region.
