14:30 - 15:30 - Curating as a Collaborative Practice: Dream City

Meeting an urgency to reclaim public spaces confined by officialdom and its institutions, Dream City is a bi-annual contemporary arts festival in the medina of Tunis, Tunisia, that aims to reimagine the city. Co-founder of arts association, L’art Rue, and director of the festival, Sofiane Ouissi and artistic director Jan Goossens, lead a session delving into the festival’s concept and materialisation.

16:00 - 17:30 - Enacting Agencies

Working across geographies, connecting with communities locally, highlighting aspects of craftsmanship or vernacular knowledge. These are some of the defining aspects of projects such as Future Assembly, Caravane Tighmert and QANAT (Kibrit) whose founders Hansi Momodu-Gordon, Carlos Perez Marín and Francesca Masoero respectively will be in a discussion around models and methodologies for community based and peer-to-peer engagement projects.

19:00 - 20:00 - À L’épreuve du Tamis

LE 18 features À L’épreuve du Tamis, a project aiming to explore different approaches to material and immaterial cultural heritage and knowledge within Moroccan contemporary art. Led by curator Fatima-Zahra Lakrissa, the artists participating in the exhibition will debate around an entanglement of concepts and traditions, restaging vernacular understanding and know-how.
We recommend arriving earlier to give yourself the opportunity to visit the exhibition prior to the start of the event at 19:00.
