Earth Art in Fez
A team of 8 artists and 10 facilitators will lead 100 students that represent 50 schools with active environmental clubs in a group art project on Friday, April 22nd at Bab Boujloud square from 9:00am – 12pm.
The project will highlight the interconnectedness of global environmental issues and develop the students’ sense of the positive impact of community-wide environmental awareness. Artists will lead students in making organic dyes from plants and spices to paint an ‘Earth Art’ mural. Participating schools will receive a framed group photo of the participants in front of the finished piece.
The concept has been developed by the photographer Omar Chennafi. The View from Fez will attend and report on the event.
