In the annual MOUSSEM CITIES festival, Moussem Nomadic Arts Centre and its partners in Brussels focus on an Arab metropolis. Each time, they choose a city with a rich and culturally diverse history, which plays a vital role in contemporary Arab societies through its artistic dynamism. Artists from the region and from the diaspora offer insight into their city and their work through performances, concerts, encounters, films, exhibitions, etc. After editions focused on Tunis and Beirut, they are casting a spotlight on Casablanca in 2018. It is the biggest city in Morocco: metropolis, port, and historic crossroads of the Arab world, Europe, Sub-Sahara, and the lands across the sea.
The full program will be announced in november 2017
