The Foundation aims to make the work of Abdelhay Mellakh known and to promote education and awareness of the environment, particularly of childhood in rural areas, said the Foundation in a statement, stating that several activities will be organized for 2018.
For example, the Foundation reports on the installation of a fine arts workshop in Upper Ourika in the summer of 2018, the establishment of partnerships for the construction and running of nursery classes, as well as an ongoing experiment with a middle school in Fez and academics conducting a catalog and several exhibitions, notes the statement.
The production of a small booklet under the title « Racontes moi ta ville, Marrakech » is also on the program. It will be printed with educational actions. Also the planting of trees under the sign: « Plant a tree with a child » which is ongoing in the upper Ourika, and the solicitude of an artist each year to illustrate a children’s book, adds the same source, noting that the position of cultural mediator is an important goal for the 2018 program.
Meanwhile, the exhibition entitled « Mellakh et la magie des lieux » is currently being held at the Mouassine Museum, home of painter Abdelhay Mellakh.
