The Trobades Camus of Menorca strengthen their international presence with activities in Morocco and Germany | Atalayar


The Trobades i Premis Albert Camus close their calendar of activities for the 2022 edition with a clear international focus, organizing meetings in Germany and Morocco. “Stir up the difference. For a journalism of ideas in the Mediterranean”, such is the concept of the debates organized at the Cervantes Institutes of the cities of Casablanca, Rabat, Fez and Tangier, from October 24 to 27.

The meetings will be presented and moderated by the writer, cultural critic and journalist Laura Fernández, with the participation of an exceptional group of journalists and intellectuals from the neighboring country: Imane Kendili, Abdelhak Najib, Abdelkader Chaoui, Widad Benmoussa, Younes Saad Alami, Mehdi Idrissi, Ali Tajiti and Mohamed El Morabet.

Albert Camus considered journalism as one of the finest professions, to which he attributed a great responsibility in the collective evolution. For Camus, everyday historians must develop critical and committed journalism on the miseries of the present.

Faced with the current dramatic situation in the world, the organizers of the Trobades Camus, which annually celebrates the writer’s legacy in Menorca, considered it essential “to restore the Camusian legacy and give voice to journalists and artists who use information to try to shake indifference and build, as Camus demanded, a journalism of ideas”.

almost a month ago, the Camusian Trobades also traveled to the German city of Frankfurt for the International Book Fair, devoted this year to Spain and its publishing industry. At the end of September, the Directorate General for the Promotion of Books and Reading of the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus de Menorca team, hosted by the Institut für Sozialforschung in Frankfurt, organized a Camusian evening entitled “Creating is living twice”.

New event in 2023

In the spring of next year, Sant Lluís and Maó will once again host the Trobades and the Albert Camus Awards Ceremony in a new edition under the slogan “The Places of the World”. Since 2017, the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus have been held in Menorca, organized by the Trobades Literàries Association and the Town Hall of Sant Lluís. Both the Trobades Mediterrànies Albert Camus, which take place in odd-numbered years, and the Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus, which take place in even-numbered years, encourage the meeting of thinkers and creators from the Mediterranean and elsewhere, promoting the validity of the thought of Albert Camus – whose grandmother was born in Sant Lluís, Menorca – and the need to recover the role of culture and artists in our societies. Albert Camus is a world reference of rebellion, justice and humanism. His thinking has inspired several generations and can serve us today, in a world as upset as the one in which he lived, to try to understand us better and help us rediscover a Mediterranean space that once again becomes a point of reference, from a cultural point of view, on the global agenda.

The Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus thus seek to become an annual meeting of critical thinking, with Albert Camus as a beacon to weave a present that is commensurate with the human.. The Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus project revolves around two axes: an event every spring in Menorca and activities that take place throughout the year. Thus, the organization of the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus works throughout the year to develop its educational project and to design activities or Camusian evenings, both inside and outside Menorca, in favoring in particular its projection abroad. The objective of this type of activities in other countries is to invite a new public to know the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus project and to share with the participants a sample of the type of debate and guests who come to Minorca.

The Trobades & Premis Mditerranis Albert Camus are supported by the family of the writer and the Society of Camusian Studies and were born from an idea of ​​Miguel Ángel Moratinos – former Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and defender of culture Mediterranean – which promotes their organization with the town hall of Sant Lluís and the sponsorship of the Fundació Foment del Turisme.
