MARAM

Mobilising Access to Rights for Artists in Morocco

MARAM is a collaborative project between the universities of Edinburgh, Manchester and Keele with the Morocco-based cultural association The Minority Globe. It is funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (GCRF - Global Challenges Research Fund) and builds on the legacy of the project Arts for Advocacy: Creative Engagement with Forced Displacement in Morocco (2016-2018).

MARAM aims to foster greater social and institutional recognition for marginal artists in Morocco (specifically migrant artists and Moroccans from vulnerable communities) and has the following main objectives:

  1. To develop a Toolkit to facilitate the navigation of existing legislation and administrative hurdles by artists based in Morocco;
  2. To enhance artistic collaboration and support networks amongst artists based in Morocco, and between artists and cultural professionals;
  3. To generate a Manifesto for Artists' Rights to shape policies affecting artists based in Morocco.
