The second call for projects SouthMed CV closed on 27 October with 160 applications from the following countries (in order of number of proposals submitted): Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon and Algeria. As the deadline approached, from 6 to 17 October, Interarts project coordinator Toni Cots travelled around Morocco to tell people who may be interested about the call: artists, cultural operators, and representatives of cultural and artistic organisations. The first city he visited was Tangier, where he gave two presentations: one as part of the workshop Med Culture Programme, and the second as part of Arty Farty Tanger in Technopark. Cots then went to Chefchaouen for the next event, held in conjunction with ‘Diversity & Development (D&D)’ at the headquarters of the ‘Association Talassemtane pour l’Environnement et le Développement’. Similar presentations were given at L’Uzine in Casablanca, and Le 18 in Marrakesh. In addition to raising awareness about the call, the trip also encompassed various activities linked to projects with funding from first SouthMed CV call, such as taking part in the presentation of Arty Farty Manifesto Tanger and visits to the Tangier Cinematheque and the project ‘Participatory research and artistic divulgation of Intangible Cultural Heritage associated to Chefchaouen Mediterranean Diet’.
