Xabaca was born from the collaboration of Novact (BCN), Al Fanar (Madrid) and Jiwar (BCN).
It wants to support female Arab creators for two reasons: their role in social transformation through art and for the double oppression they face for being artists and women.
Jiwar ask me to design and manage the web. It has been stimulating and pedagogical to work and to treat the contents that Xabaca offers us.
Last 2018 I had the pleasure to define with Pujol-Busquets Guillén family a new graphic frame to present Alta Alella brand and its products. Developing the website and during the harvesting days being with them and my photo camera.
Platform Harakat action: Beyond Qafila Thania is developed in Kibrit's frame. That’s how it came to me the opportunity to design, programm and manage the Platform website.
In October the Platform was presented in Swab Art Fair and along with Pau Catà we worked on the graphic communication of both, Harakat Platform and Kibrit, designing the posters.
Also we were working out the Projects presentation that are part of the Platform. We designed and produced the stand that was the umbrella of both projects within the Focus Mediterranean's frame in Swab.

KIBRIT and Platform HARAKAT were part of FOCUS MEDITERRANIA at SWAB Barcelona International Art Fair 2017.
FOCUS MEDITERRANIA, curated by Xavier de Luca, included artistic projects from Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Palestine and Catalonia, offering an in-depth approximation into the cultural contexts of the Euro-Mediterranean region.
During the fair, we were presenting the projects developed by each KIBRIT partner, with a special focus on Platform Harakat, a project reflecting upon the traditions and contradictions of travelling and its multiple meanings weaved in the Mediterranean, Sahel and West African regions, developed by CeRCCa together with a group of artists, writers and curators and conceived as a step beyond the NACMM (North Africa Cultural Mobility Map).
In February 2017 Kibrit was born, funded by South MedCV and Anna Lindh Foundation. Since then I have been collaborating with the partners, mainly designing and programming Kibrit's website, as well as updating the content during the year.
I have also entrusted various graphic and production tasks related to the presentation of Kibrit project in Swab Fair. It has been a pleasure to document with photos the partners meetings, in Algiers on Febraury and a couple of times here in Barcelona.
Work it out with Yvon Langue graphic designer, and the programm coordinators Pau Catà and Francesca Masoero. In collaboration with the Partners: Le18, Maison de l'Image, L'atelier de l'Observatoire, Cercca, Jiser, Rhizome, Ramallah Municipality.
