Book Drive Appeal
Culture Vultures Arts Organisation and AiR Sefrou, Artist In Residence, connects people locally, regionally and nationally with an enriching experience in Northern Morocco. The residency programme has been running for four years with a staff versed in both arts and local knowledge. We orientate artists, curators and researchers to immerse themselves in the landscape as well as lifting opportunity for presentation of new work.
The time frame for the artists in residence to be with AiR Sefrou is usually one month: this time goes by swiftly as we encourage the daily practice to be active and integrated with the immediate community and surrounding cultures. As the residency house and local cafes serve well for contemplation and reading, we are expanding our current book collection to infuse this experience with knowledge apart from the internet. The connections made with the community and work with local artisans are guaranteed to offer insight into the rich location however, book resources are essential to support the artist’ s work.
There is a wealth of great books from all genres, set with Morocco as a protagonist, that artists coming to Sefrou can benefit immensely from, potentially feed their artwork and often further develop a dialogue.
