TEH meeting 76 in Marseilles

The Roberto Cimetta Fund would like to inform you about the upcoming meeting of Trans Europe Halles intitled "Jalla Jalla! The Power of Culture in Social Change" that will take place at La Friche la Belle de Mai, in Marseilles from 28th November to 1st December 2013.


La Friche* is one of the member organisations of the Trans Europe Halles network and RCF is happy to be collaborating with TEH, La Friche and AMI* in the organisation of this meeting.


Marseille, the legendary Mediterranean seaport is the perfect place to gather activists and artists from the Euro-Arab zone to share experiences and start new collaborations. 25 artists and cultural operators from Egypt, Jordan, Iran, Palestine, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey will be guests at TEH Meeting 76 to give inspirational examples of how they work in a culture of independence and to share their stories of how culture actions can lead to social change and a more open society. 


Through vivid panel discussions, exclusive one-to-one sessions, focus groups and joint dinners you will have a unique opportunity to discuss and learn about alternative methods of working and meet potential partners from Europe and beyond. Moreover you will have the chance to discover contemporary theatre performances at the on-going Hiwarat Festival, produced in collaboration with artists and cultural operators from France and the Arabic world. 


TEH Meeting 76 will also be the occasion to celebrate the 30 years of the network with an anniversary party on the Saturday night.


The meeting is co-organised by La Friche la Belle de Mai, Roberta Cimetta Fund and L'AMI. The meeting is powered by Engine Room Europe, a three-year project funded by the European Commission and dedicated to independent cultural workers and their creative processes.
