3R’s Maroc 21 was initiated by the artist Seamus Farrell. The first part took place already in 2007 in Martil (Morocco), as a workshop. The second part was staged in the middle of the market Afrikaandermarkt in Rotterdam. The project is part of Multipistes, a cooperative art-project involving international curators and artists.
The workshop in Morocco involved local and international youths from the rest of Africa and aimed to reinvent a new entrepreneurial and environmental craftsmanship based on reusing and recycling glass material for the production of daily-life, design and artistic objects.
Together with Seamus Farrell we sublet part of a stand in Afrikaandermarkt and, with the help of the Mohssin Harraki, we re-enacted and re-interpreted the Moroccan workshop in a Dutch market context that functioned as a working space (production of objects), as a business space (selling produced objects), as a communication space (a showcase of the workshop in Martil), and as a platform for debating about artistic processes as triggers of development in different contexts.
