Along side pOp Up art space ‘alZahra’ in the heart of the medina, Culture Vultures presents to the medina of Fez this coming festival season a fringe program of performance, art projects, flash mobbing and yarn bombing. These fantastic and hip fringe offerings will bring contemporary arts and modern concepts of performance into the streets of Fez. Together with revealing artists projects and sharing artworks with the medina Culture Vultures’ intention is to pin Fez on the map of new happenings and spontaneous, contemporary arts events. There is no time like the present.
Our fringe program is as follows
- Flash Mobing Fez
In collaboration with Timbre Flaws Choir, from Sydney, Australia, Gershom Company and The American School Fez, Culture Vultures presents to the city of Fez, Flash Mobbing. Happenings, show-casing dance, music and song, will pop-up in the streets of Fez’ medina and Ville, in apparent spontaneity.
Any time, any place. Fez. 7 – 15th June.
- Street Carpet by Colleen Cassar 7 – 15th June – Batha Square
As part of the pOp uP and delight in surprise nature of this year’s Sacred Music Festival, and the theme of Al Andaluz, Colleen Cassar multi-media artist from Australia will build a textile wall carpet from gathered waste fabrics and recycled clothing……in an unlikely backdrop begging for beauty, colour and reflection. Inspired by the style of ‘boucheruite’ carpets and Morocco’s traditional cross stitch embroidery she will build a vertical panel of Andalucian inspired garden space.

Let’s take a walk along the green spaces of the medina and look at the city, its sites and surfaces from the perspective of the garden. Heidi Vogels is an Amsterdam based artist, who initiated a research project about gardens and stories in Fez that is to be developed into a short film (2014). The Garden Walk includes an introduction to the historical development of the city’s green spaces, an intimate look into stories and memories of Fez citizens, and the illustration of the garden as imaginary space in poetry and song. Sharing stories, facts and finds is the starting point for this three-and-half-hour morning walk together with the artist, while turning unexpected corners in exploring the medina gardens and their spatial and social imaginaries.
Bring: walking shoes, camera, hat
