Hassan Darsi will work with residents of the Beni Aïssi village to create an agro-ecological village for his The Place Remember project. Activities include: a film documenting organizing of the village, a citizen’s cultural walk to build solidarity and create new artistic paths for interaction, and a poetic intervention in collaboration with the children of the village.

Darsi is the founder of La Source du Lion, a space for artistic research, exchange, and creation that responds to the local context. Over a period of more than 20 years, Darsi has amassed a diverse body of work: photography, installations, sculptures, events in public spaces, architectural models, performances, videos, and participatory projects. Darsi has also participated in numerous international exhibitions in countries such as Senegal, South Africa, Lebanon, Spain, France, Germany, the United States, Czechoslovakia, Holland, Belgium, and Morocco.
