From March 26th to April 16th, this artist residency offers up to 5 arts practitioners the chance to live and work in the heart of an old Moroccan medina in Northern Morocco.  Spend 3 weeks exploring and working in a culture steeped in a rich history, surrounded by ancient living and yet a hairsbreadth away from modernity. The brevity of this residency means that investigation and experimentation weigh as much as production.
