TIZI-OUZOU- The 17th edition of the Raconte-Arts cultural festival, planned this year at the village Ait Smail, in the commune of Yaakourène, the province of Tizi-Ouzou, is “mortgaged” by the health situation in the country, said, on Saturday, the organizers of this cultural event.
The organization of this edition, initially scheduled for July 19, 26 every year, is “mortgaged by the evolution of the pandemic which is raging around the world and has not not spared our country”, said, Menad Mbarek, president of the local film and drama arts league, organizer of the event.
“It is not easy to organize an event of such magnitude in a similar context, especially since the organization of this kind of activities has been banned. ”
Launched in 2004 in Ath-Yenni, on the initiative of a trio of friends, Hacen Metref, Denis Martinez and Arezki Diche, this adventurous festival has passed through 15 villages in the province of Tizi-Ouzou, and one in the province of Béjaia during the 6th edition in 2010.
