KASHKOUL // Issue 01
Collective resistance

For the first time in what seems like ages, the entire world finds itself once more combating a universal pandemic, but not actually combating if we look at the helplessness worlds’ governments are exhibiting in the face of this crisis. And while the world is busy trying to find a solution for the covid 19 virus, we find ourselves as libyans stuck in an even further, multilayered crisis, facing what seems to be a bleak question: “how do we survive a pandemic under an avalanche of shelling and bombs?”

Value of Art in social fabric!?

We’re part of Reshape trajectory that works on reshaping the value of art in social fabric, a program that gathers professionals from the arts and culture sector from across Europe and the south Mediterranean.
During our recent meeting in Gent, Belgium, We used the card game (reframing the international) which was designed by Flanders institute to help cultural actors prototype their projects, identify threats and propose a process of knowledge sharing and thinking collectively and critically.

We theoretically played the game to conceptualize a project idea of an art installation that would be put in one of Tripoli’s main streets, where citizens have the freedom to ask questions to the city and interact with it.
Now we want you to collectively think with us; If Tripoli was a person in front of you, What would be your question?

ابتدأنا شهر يناير في ماكال (متحف الفن الأفريقي المعاصر) في مراكش لحضور المعسكر التدريبي المكثف الذي جمع عشرين منتجًا ثقافيًا من شمال وغرب وشرق وجنوب القارة الأفريقية، حيث شاركنا في برنامج من المحاضرات والندوات، محادثات وجولات المعارض لمدة أربعة أيام متتالية من آجل التشبيك بين الفاعلين في المنطقة وخلق فرص للتعاون المحتمل.
