Creativity, innovation, design, ability to convey emotion, to dream or smile and of course technical excellence are important criteria in selection. The body of works has been narrowed down to around 110 pieces. The opening will be presented by curator Laura Michael. This project is supported by Spanish Foundation for Innovation of Crafts and the Spanish and Moroccan Ministy of Culture as well as the Instituto Cervantes.

The show opens at the Instituto Cervantes Gallery, Fez,  on the 22nd of March and runs for a month.
