Report of the Symposium exploring mobility in the Arab world and around the Mediterranean, June 2011, Arab Education Forum

A Mediterranean city par excellence, Jordan hosted on the 1st and 2nd of June 2011 the first symposium “exploring mobility around the Mediterranean“, organized by the Arab Education Forum – Safar Fund and Roberto Cimetta Fund. This Symposium, which is a cornerstone in the Istikshaf project, aims to expand on and develop a renewed understanding of contemporary mobility by bringing together people able to think mobility in its widest sense. With a special focus on artistic mobility, this Symposium is an attempt to respond to the evident shortage in literature on mobility as a tool for learning, dialogue, and artistic exchange and as a new-old paradigm around the Mediterranean basin. 

Read the report of the symposium in the Safar Fund July's newsletter and learn why it didn't take place in Alexandria in February 2011!
