About Fez Art Lab
At the intersection of preservation and transformation, the Fez Art Lab is a cultural innovation space, dedicated to curating projects that serve the community.
The Fez Art Lab is an extension of the Fez Gathering focused on locally promoting art as a vehicle for positive change.
Upcoming Fez Art Lab projects aim to support the pivoting role of art in the local community during this time of changing routines and social norms.
For centuries, Fez has bridged economic, intellectual, cultural, social and spiritual differences between the “East” and “West,” as well as between the “North” and “South.”
The city of Fez is a UNESCO world heritage site. A spiritual and intellectual city, it is the home of Al-Qarawiyyin, the oldest functioning university in the world, inspiring revolutionaries such as Leo Africanus, Ibn Khaldun and Ibn Battuta. Symbolizing the peaceful co-existence and fusion of numerous peoples, religions and cultures, it remains an important link between Europe and Africa. Today, Fez hosts cultural events such as the Festival of Sacred Music and the Festival of Sufi Culture.
