Marrakech Biennale

First held in November 2005, the Marrakech Biennale is the first major trilingual (English, Arabic & French) festival in North Africa focusing on cutting-edge contemporary art, literature and film. The Marrakech Biennale seeks to build cultural bridges through the arts well as between disciplines by enabling discussions with and between artists. By bringing together Artists, Film makers and Writers from around the world the Biennale aims to promote the status of the artist and contemporary culture in North Africa and to dynamize the regional creative scene. Held every two years, the Marrakech Biennale promotes inter-cultural and inter-disciplinary exchanges through an educational approach that addresses art professionals, students and the general public.
