Tangier Memories

Memories of Tangier were collected during a Memory Session on 19th October 2012 at the Al-Hasaniya Moroccan Women Centre, in West London (UK) as part of the Living Archaeology of the Place programme running parallel to the installation Streets of… 7 cities in 7 minutes. Participants, who either came from Tangier or had lived there, expressed their views on its cultural traditions, celebrations such as weddings,traditional women’s clothing, the slow pace of Moroccan everyday life, and the international past of the city.

Additional memories were collected in September 2014 during the presentation of the installation at San Domenico Maggiore Museum in Naples, as part of the Universal Forum of Cultures.
