The Mediterranean Biennale in Sakhnin
The Second Mediterranean Biennale, in Sakhnin, will constitute the continuation of the First Mediterranean Biennale which was held in 2010 in the city of Haifa. The event was an attempt to create a cultural outlook in a Mediterranean context via regional cooperation by exhibiting works of art that express and enhance this theme. The Second Mediterranean Biennale will be held in the city of Sakhnin in the Galilee in north of Israel and will offer an alternative platform laying emphasis on the local processes occurring in the area and their cultural influences. Sakhnin is an Israeli Arab town in the Galilee. It was a flourishing town during the Roman Conquest in the 2nd Century and it has the largest population of Sufi Muslims in Israel.
