Clock Culture Launch

Wednesday night at Cafe Clock saw the launch of Clock Culture - an enticing array of cultural events to be staged at the Cafe by Cultural Coordinator, Jess Stephens.

The place was packed with locals and visitors who were entertained by well-known Fez singer Anass, accompanied by Aiysha, who'd come specially from Barcelona, along with North African dancer, Leali.

On the walls were splendid examples of calligraphy art by Noudine Daifallah, supplied by the Orientalist Art Gallery, a huge photograph by Tom Fakler and a calligraphy mural by Mohamed Charkaoui. Projected onto the Cafe wall was the Fishli and Weiss art video, The Way Things Go.
There was soft sculpture and installation art by Jess Stephens, and while the Sabul Assalam Centre presented an outline of their lecture programme, henna artists Fatima and Amina got to work.

Here's a sample of what Fez residents and visitors can look forward to in the future:

February 17: Sunday Sunset Concert with Anass
February 23: Knit4Peace 'knit-in'
February 24: Sunday Sunset Concert with classical guitar duet 'The Thunder Boys'
March 2: next calligraphy course commences
March 7: Lecture by Subul Assalam Centre The Role of the Hijab
March 8: International Women's Day celebration 14h00-18h00

Cafe Clock would like to thank their sponsors for the evening: The Orientalist Art Gallery, Fez Riads, the Arabic Language Institute in Fez/American Language Center and the Subul Assalam Centre.
