Meriem Khalil promotes education through art.

As a guest on the Adraoui Live program during the episode on Sunday, August 30, 2020, Meriem Khalil discussed art, culture, and education.

As a professor and researcher in education sciences and the host of the Moroccan national television’s weekly cultural program SADA AL IBDAA, Meriem Khalil is also a university lecturer.

During the show hosted by Abderrahmane Adraoui, Meriem Khalil focused on her contribution to the collective work “MAROC, DE QUOI AVONS-NOUS PEUR ?” (Morocco, What Are We Afraid Of?), edited by Najib ABDELHAK and Noureddine BOUSFIHA with the participation of over 50 authors.

Under the theme “Art in Schools, a Democratic Urgency,” Meriem Khalil’s contribution discusses the importance of democratizing access to art within the Moroccan school system to contribute to the development of the learner, develop their personality, and prepare an audience that frequents cultural institutions.

The guest also spoke about her participation, as the only young Moroccan, in the Conference held at the University of Montreal in 2016, as part of the 3rd International Symposium on Education, in collaboration with the Interprofessional Research Center on Training and the Teaching Profession.

During the conference, Meriem Khalil had to define the place given to artistic education in the Moroccan education system, mainly based on an analysis of official documents.

One of the objectives of this visit was to draw inspiration from successful experiences abroad to rethink elements of the Moroccan education system. Meriem Khalil recalls an excellent moment of exchange of expertise, especially since the conference had over 1000 speakers, with the guest being the representative of Morocco.

In AdraouiLive, Meriem Khalil delved into the reflection on how to promote Moroccan culture abroad, giving the example of DAR AL MAGHRIB in Montreal, urging to break away from the folkloric image of art and culture and try to implement projects that appeal to every citizen of the world.

In her interview, Meriem Khalil notes that it is necessary to have human resources capable not only of managing but also of opening up to the world of art, facilitating the realization of artistic projects that meet international standards, and making culture a universal tool for intercultural dialogue.
