Creative Lab Workshop on Arts and Culture in Amsterdam

27 Oct, 2016 

AFAC co-organised a workshop on 24-25 October at Impact Hub Amsterdam, together with the DOEN foundation, the Foundation “Festival sur le Niger” and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The title of the workshop, conducted under a  peer-to-peer experimental exchange format, addressed the questions:  What is the role of arts & culture today in building understanding and social cohesion? How can our arts & culture community build continued collaborative action for positive impact?

 

The  two-day creative lab gathered leaders and practitioners in the arts & culture field to meet and explore how stories from the sector can hold the seed of the positive future we imagine and want; and how it can leverage the courageous work of artists and changemakers working for social change. Participants included a number of Dutch and international institutions as well as a number of participants from the Arab region: Omar Abi Azar from the Zoukak collective, Lebanon; Khaldun Busara from Riwaq, Palestine; Rana Yazaji from Mawred Al Thaqafi, Egypt; Moez Mrabet theater director from Tunisia; Menatalla El-Shazly from Medrar, Egypt; Tamara Abdul-Hadi from the Rawiya Collective.
