Music, poetry, graphic and cultural art play a vital role in community cohesion and well-being. Art is employed for social uplift, providing a vital entry point for women into the economy, and is also exploited by violent actors to foment conflict. The program will explores this topic and also address the challenge of corporate appropriation of Amazigh art in Morocco.
