In the morning I tried to find the English book shop but it was hard to locate it. I headed for Zoom Pizza for a much needed coffee. There was Pauline who originally told me about it and she kindly […]
Artists bursaries - Page 2 of 2 - a-n The Artists Information Company
As Le Cube was temporarily closed I headed to the one place for food – Pizza Zoom and had a lovely conversation with Pauline who works at the British Council in Rabat. I made a good contact and told her […]
I visited Rabat last February to make a video, however Rabat is very different from Marrakech and not particularly tourist driven; more like Manchester in the sun. My original concept was based on perceived vulnerably, peoples interactions and the gaze […]
Professor Rachid El Alaoui was in Rabat to greet me, taking me to a main square called Pietri Place, Place Moulay El Hassan where lots of mainly young Moroccans and families gather for coffee and socialising after breaking the fast […]
With the afternoon free until my train I sourced MAISON de la Photographie de Marrakech which costs 40dhs entry and is located at 46, Rue Ahal Fes, Marrakch. Email [email protected] www.maisondelaphotographie.ma tel: 0524385721 The current exhibition is entitled ‘Morocco, the […]
On landing Karim who I was sat next to on the flight hired a car and offered to drop me at the train station allowing me from negotiating with the airport taxis (who in my experience charge over the odds!). The […]

Firstly apologies for no blog yesterday. We basically spent all day sweeping up the barn (think mammoth spider webs and tonnes of pigeon shit). There has been a woofers revolt. They couldn’t handle Hermine any more and have done a […]
Having looked at some of our footage, we decided we needed to reshoot a bit. We have made a film of the intersection of some motorways but the sky looks a bit boring, we fancied some dark clouds in it. […]
In preparation for our bee visit today, we looked up the dos and don’ts of apiary life. Don’t be overly perfumed. Or be smelly. Bit of dilemma there. Don’t wear black socks, as bees sting dark things. Be calm at […]
OK so today’s post is going to be a bit more on the gentle side compared to our Parisian adventures up to now, for today we stayed in Sacy. We invited Hermine to do a bit of yoga with us. […]
Sorry for the delayed blog post – the internet was down when we got in last night. Either that or Hermine had switched it off as she could “sense a thunderstorm brewing.” We did have a few interesting conversations with […]
