Le voyage de l’artiste

By (author): Mizouni Bannani

Translated by: Leïla Tahir

An Artist’s Journey emphasises the values of loyalty and belonging to one’s homeland, speaking to teens in an eloquent and beautiful language while raising contemporary issues of immigration and problems faced by expatriates, as well as the value of art and cultural integration. It is a captivating story told by an enlightened grandmother in the Hakawati style. She uses sound effects, masks and drawing tools while nar­rating the tale. Told from the perspective of small and colourful birds, the story is a miniature example of desired civic life in the Arab Islamic so­cieties based on the values of justice, equality, respect for the supremacy of law, tolerance, love, cooperation, national identity, and defending the homeland. This book encourages educators to teach in different ways, such as using art to engage children to pursue knowledge, acquire life skills and develop their intelligence.
