Local Information

Our residency programme is held in Morocco at Cafe Tissardmine, a cultural retreat in the Moroccan Sahara, a place of tranquility, inspiration, and discovery. Situated in Morocco at the edge of Erg Chebbi, one of the largest sand dunes in the Sahara, Café Tissardmine provides a creative oasis for artists and travellers amongst the desert’s beauty, grandeur and stillness and the culture of the indigenous Berber people. It was created by Australian artist, Karen Hadfield, and local Berber Youssef Bouchedor. For more on Café Tissardmine, its environment and accommodation, see:
