  1. Dear friends and colleagues, This meetings would be an opportunity to consolidate our continuous dialogues. I inform you about the Laboratory “Art, Technology and Ecology” we are building at the High School for Visual Arts in Marrakech (ESAV): http://www.appartement22.com/spip.php?article200 Please send your publications.

  2. We are here and lets rise to the challenge. Networking is not a new concept to Africa- villages build homes through networking ie making heavy work light- just like computers do.
    We just ned to find innovative ways of doing it and not copy old ways that were developed under completely different contexts!
    Haraambe stands for networking too- though the political context is questionable! Let’s get to it.
