An international debate about how different local realities meet to reflect wider and common Mediterranean realities that inter-relate with one another by Inizjamed.
Date: Wednesday 27 March 2019
Place: Concert Hall, Palazzo de La Salle, 219, Reoublic Street, Valletta
This seminar is organised by Inizjamed and addresses how different local realities can be brought together to reflect a wider, more common Mediterranean reality, or set of realities, that inter-relate with one another. The aspect of the Phoenicians being a sort of mythical, legendary archetype of common Mediterranean roots that however still inspires many cultural operators in seeking exchange through intercultural dialogue, as opposed to neocolonial and neoliberal economic measures, will provide us with a framework to which all of our speakers can relate to – this is so because in some way or another they either address this aspect through their work, or in a way act as contemporary Phoenicians, so to speak.
With Mario Gerada chairing, Dr Antonio Barone (La Rotta dei Fenici – Itinerario Culturale del Consiglio d’Europa, Salinunte, Sicily), Prof Osama Hamdan, Jericho Mosaic Centre) and Noureddine Ezarraf (engaged artist from Casablanca). The event is supported by the Centre for the Study and Practice of Conflict Resolution, the Department of International Relations, The Department of Maltese and the
Institute for Tourism, Travel and Culture at the University of Malta.
