NADI LEKOL NAS archives independent cultural content to democratize cultural memory. While respecting and protecting the copyrights and intellectual property of artists and rights holders, we open “archives” by transforming them into common and collective property. For us, information belongs to all and archiving is the backbone to saving our cultural heritage. We thus believe in investing and building a collective memory through films, music and writings. Since 1998, our association, as a strong believer in the civic role of arts and culture, has been documenting independent cinematographic and musical productions from the Arab region, including works dating back to 1930.
Our aim is to promote artistic and popular heritage production in its diversity through its dissemination, archiving and distribution.
In addition, we collect and document content about artists, directors and musicians (articles, photographs, posters of films, press reviews, etc.) in order to contextualize cultural works from the moment they are produced.
