spiked’s Nathalie Rothschild brushed up her school French and headed to Morocco for a cultural festival organised by the Fès Foundation.

She found that a valuable lesson lies behind the programme’s New Age message of ‘spirituality, peace and reconciliation’: the festival highlights how, throughout history, meetings of civilisations have led to invaluable exchanges of scientific and cultural ideas.
