The Marrakech Biennale is a festival with the mission to build bridges between the cultures through the arts.
We inspire outstanding artists from all over the world to create work that responds to the the magical environment of Marrakech.
The Marrakech Biennale is a celebration of creativity in a city that has been the focus of artistic exploration for centuries; a gathering of arts enthusiasts who organize stimulating conferences, interactive events and world-class exhibitions.
Founded in 2004, we are celebrating not only the arts, but also our 10th anniversary with the Biennale's 5th edition.
