The workshop will take on a similar schedule of work over the week and this year will include an overnight trip out of Fez to the blue city of Chefchaouen to add a new perspective on the workshop and give photographers an opportunity to photograph this compelling city in the Rif Mountains north of Fez. Building upon our previous workshops we will also travel to either the imperial city of Meknes, or Middle Atlas towns of Azrou or Seffrou  for a another aspect of cultural immersion outside of the labarinthyn medina of Fez.

We will again be basing ourselves from Dar Finn , as we have done in the past, which offers a boutique riad living space and amazing food,  ideally located deep in the heart of the Fez medina  for easy pedestrian access across the whole of the medina to shoot in various locations.

We have also been in contact with the cross cultural Cafe Clock in Fez and will be inviting the public and projecting  our initial introductions to our work , the work of previous workshops and the final workshop presentations of the workshop participants.
