JIWAR PARTICIPATED IN THE MINISTERIAL MEETING 

5+5 IN MARSEILLE

The past 24 and 25 October Jiwar participated in Med Forum 2016, Anna Lindh Foundation meeting on the island of Malta. With 600 other associations from our Mediterranean region, we discuss about our regional major issues like: mobility, social justice and extremisms. The Forum has allowed us to discover organisations whose are already a new benchmark for us. We came back eager to bet again to become a hinge of exchanges between artists from the region.

Two days later, Jiwar was selected to bring the results and recommendations of the Forum at the ministerial meeting of the group 5 + 5 to Marseille that group together the foreign ministers of the Western Mediterranean: Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Malta and Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. We could ask about the democratization of mobility in the Mediterranean, the terrible impasse of visas and personal and collective dramas that it involves. As we expected, there was no convincing answer beyond that politically correct. The free movement of people is and it will be for a long time a pipe dream.

PARTICIPATION IN THE CONVERSATION "WOMEN ARTISTS" IN MNAC 

The past 19 October we participated in a conversation in the MNAC organized by Espai Avinyó with women artists from different cultural contexts with the occasion of the exhibition of the "recovered" painter of Catalan modernism Lluïsa Vidal. It was an interesting conversation with Tania Adam, Namina and Rosario García Huidoro and good reception of the MNAC by one of its curators, Eduard Vallès.
