The Rencontres de la Photographie de Marrakech is an independent festival in its fourth edition. The festival is organized by the association Voix Plurielles. The Association Voix Plurielles is a cultural association created in 2018. Its mission is to develop cultural projects that contribute to the animation and enrichment of city life. Its activities span various fields such as art, organizing symposiums, and literary, artistic, and cultural meetings related to major cultural and civilizational issues. The conception of our projects is mainly based on: Creativity, as a source and motivation for individual, social, and economic development.

CONCEIVING local cultural projects to meet specific needs and contexts.

INNOVATING by integrating different approaches: cultural policies, populations, cultural tourism, geographical, historical, socio-economic, scientific, heritage contexts, etc. The population (the public) is a source of development: it carries the project of valorizing its city, region, and country.

CREATING sustainable and specific development programs: conception, assembly, monitoring, coordination.

RESPONDING to private and public requests from cities, regions, national and international levels.

Its strengths lie in its ability to bring together and confront intercultural and multidisciplinary fields to create sustainable cultural programs.
