AMAZIGH CULTURAL TOURS MOROCCO
Established in 2013, Amazigh Cultural Tours Morocco works with selected artists who have a culturally sensitive approach to place and a specialist media or area of practice that provides a focus for a travel experience with a difference.
Facilitated by Rita Lazauskas, a range of Specialist Art Tours are offered where participants embark on a two week adventure that has Arts and Culture as the main focus and a flexible art program suitable for all skill levels from beginners to advanced.
Travelling with a small group of like-minded people the focus is on art skills, knowledge and practice in PAINTING, DRAWING, PHOTOGRAPHY, JEWELLERY and TEXTILES, through to broader engagement with the ancient AMAZIGH (BERBER) CULTURE of Morocco – exploring the heritage, art, craft, music, food, spirituality, subsistence farming and nomadic lifestyle that has endured throughout the years.
The tours begin in the colourful medina of Marrakech then take a route across the famous Tizi n’Tichka Atlas Mountains pass through traditional Amazigh (Berber) villages to the sand dunes of the Sahara.
The artworks created en route trace an experience in space and time – a record of your journey!
