Trans-Cultural Dialogues: Learning journeys Algiers 2013

final logoTrans-Cultural Dialogues:

A Euro-Mena co-working rhizome of young artists and theoreticians


Trans-Cultural Dialogues is a platform that aims to reflect on various contemporary social issues through a multidisciplinary cultural approach to provide flexible and new sustainable mobility solutions and exchange between cultural actors, artistic and researchers from Euro-MENA region.

The team is composed by a group of young professionals from different cultural and artistic associations, who participated in the international meeting Cultural Innovators Network, organized by the Goethe Institute Alexandria in Istanbul in December 2012.

The main objective is to organize an international project of local importance rooted in the region. That is why we have developed a traveling biennial to be held in different cities of the region. Unanimously we’ve chosen the city of Algiers for the first edition of this initiative.

There was a team meeting – Learning journeys in Algiers from 22nd to 29th September 2013, which has in-depth knowledge of Algerian cultural and artistic scene.

During those days, there were several working sessions to prepare what will be the first festival, under the name DJART 2014 that will be held in this city in November 2014, and will host three days of activities related to visual arts, the music and social science research.

DJART, which combines the words ‘Djazair’ (Algeria) and ‘Art’. Also ‘Jar’ in Arabic means neighbor. This closeness and complicity will help us explore the Algerian cultural reality open to the rest of the Mediterranean creations.


Trans-Cultural Dialogues est une plate-forme qui vise à réfléchir sur divers enjeux sociaux contemporains à travers une approche culturelle pluridisciplinaire pour apporter des solutions flexibles et des nouveaux modèles durables de mobilité et d’échanges entre les acteurs culturels, artistiques et chercheurs de l’espace Euro-MENA.

L’équipe de travail est composée d’un groupe de jeunes professionnels de différentes associations culturelles et artistiques, qui ont participés à la rencontre internationale Cultural Innovators Network, organisé par le Goethe Institut Alexandria à Istanbul en Décembre 2012.

Comme objectif principal, nous proposons d’organiser un projet international d’importance locale enracinée dans la région. C’est pourquoi nous avons développé une biennale itinérante, qui se tiendra dans différentes villes de la région. À l’unanimité nous avons choisi la ville d’Alger pour la première édition de cette initiative.

Il y a eu une réunion de l’équipe à Alger du 22 au 29 Septembre 2013, qui a permis de connaître en profondeur la scène culturelle et artistique algérienne.

Pendant ces jours, il y a eu plusieurs séances de travail pour préparer ce qui sera le premier festival, qui sous le nom DJART 2014, aura lieu dans cette ville au mois de Novembre 2014 et accueillera pendant trois jours des activités liées aux arts visuels, à la musique et à la recherche en sciences sociales.

DJART, qui combine les mots ‘Djazair’ (Algérie) et ‘Art’, aussi ‘Jar’ signifie voisin en arabe. Cette proximité et complicité nous aidera à explorer la réalité culturelle algérienne ouverte sur le reste des créations méditerranéennes.
