Performing Tangier Festival 18th Edition - International Conference: The Performing Body
A five-day long, city-wide festival featuring a range of events, including an International Conference.
The University of New England is honored to sponsor and support the international conference “The Performing Body” organized by Professor Khalid Amine and his colleagues. I am sure our students, as well as the general public in our region, will benefit greatly from the presentations and performances that will be given during this landmark event. I am especially delighted to know that such a group of distinguished scholars and artists from all over the world will come to discover-—or rediscover, in many instances— the riches of Tangier and the great promise of Morocco for the future of peace in our troubled region. There is nothing like art to make a difference and bring nations and cultures together and help them see with clear eyes our diverse but common human heritage. This event would never have happened without the dedication and tenacious commitment of Professor Amine. We all owe him a huge debt of gratitude.
