London, 21 November 2017:
Libyan creative cultural organization Tanarout celebrated the second anniversary of its creation at its headquarters in Benghazi with a cultural event on Sunday.
This included a clairvoyance exhibition for artists to celebrate foresight and the awareness of sensations, a first such exhibition to be held in Libya, organizers told the eastern-based LANA state news agency.
The event which concludes on the 23rd November included a display of collectables, music, a poetry evening and book reading.
Tanarout say they are made up of a group of leading artists and intellectuals who are determined to banish the stereotype image of the intelligentsia and culture in Libya by using scientific and profound methods through a theoretical and practical vision capable of promoting culture in Libyan society.
Tanarout have also organized an event on International day of the book in April this year and in 2016 where they organized book readings, distributed books for free and put on musical performances. They also organize courses and workshops in creative writing, poetry reading, oratory, Arabic calligraphy, and various instrument playing.
Their book reading club has covered 38 books in two years for a number of Libyan, Arab and international writers and held panel discussions on three writers: Sadeq Naihoum, Virginia Woolf and Saadallah Wanoos.
