Heritage Day: Tangier To Celebrate Cultural Heritage On September 18

Written by FDM

Between urban strolls and the discovery of the Moroccan contemporary artistic scene, Tangier foresees a culturally rich Heritage Day. After a two-year hiatus, “Being here” returns for its 4th edition on September 18.

In light of Heritage Day, the SSILATE association offers an artistic journey in Tangier through “Being here”. This event, of which the French Institute of Tangier is a partner, signs its 4th edition after two years of interruption due to the Covid -19 pandemic.

Since 2018, the SSILATE association has been opening new, emblematic, and symbolic places in the city of Tangier, inviting the public to explore the city and discover its heritage.

This year, the public will have access to eight places: a former school, the abandoned pension, the former Monoprix closed in 1950, the bazaar, the unoccupied villa, and the rehabilitated prison, turned into a museum of contemporary art.

For the artistic side of the event, roughly fifty artists (visual artists, photographers, sculptors, videographers, sound, and digital creators, actors, musicians, singers, writers, and dancers) are invited to bring the chosen places back to life for the event.

In other words, the rediscovery of emblematic places of Tangier embellished with an unprecedented encounter between artists from here and elsewhere.
