Libya: Tafsweet Amazigh cultural festival in Jadoo
The Tafsweet cultural festival took place between the 7th and 9th of November in Jadoo, an Amazigh town located at Nafusa mountain, about 200 kilometers south west of Tripoli. The festival was attended by diplomats from American, British and Italian embassies.
The festival celebrated Amazigh culture, with lectures, live music, and an Amazigh play. There were also displays of cultural objects, from kitchen equipment and textiles to an Amazigh book show - this was the first time Amazigh books were permitted to be shown in public since the fall of the Gaddafi regime.
