Tamooda: An Arab intellectual media initiative launched to give voice to the Arab world demanding a renewed renaissance


A new media platform called “Tamooda”, an old city in the Kingdom of Morocco whose cultural value inspired a group of Arab intellectuals to name this platform after it, in partnership with the Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development (ARDD), to be a platform for free expression, concerned with understanding the renewed and upcoming Arab regional and global issues and transformations, and to offer a modern presentation of the visions and hopes of the Renaissance, in both Arabic and English.

The platform, chaired by Moroccan philosopher and thinker, Dr. Ali Oumlil, includes in its advisory board: Award winning Syrian Poet, Essayist and Translator Adunis “Ali Ahmad Said Esber”, Algerian diplomat and politician Lakhdar Brahimi, Former Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs and current UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations Miguel Angel Moratinos, Dean of the School of Liberal Arts at Tulane University in the United States Brian T. Edwards, member of the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco Rahma Bourguia, Director of the Center for Strategic Studies and Chairman of the Board of Directors of ARDD Dr. Zaid Ayadat, CEO of ARDD Samar Muhareb, former Jordanian Minister and former Secretary-General of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia Rima Khalaf, President of Saint George University in Beirut Tarek Mitri, researcher and academic Ayyad Ben Ashour, Palestinian diplomat Leila Shahid, researcher Ghassan Salameh, economic researcher Fathallah Wallou, writer and former Moroccan minister Mohammed Ash’ari, researcher and academic Mohammed Touzi, as well as the platform’s chief consultant, journalist, playwright, and novelist Edriss Ksikes.

The platform will address many political, economic, social and cultural topics that will contribute to discussions related to the needs of Arab society, in addition to renewing the dialogue on Arab Renaissance through Arab and international intellectual, cultural, and political figures renowned in their respective fields.

It is worth noting that the “Tamooda” platform includes a team of young Arab producers of creative intellectual media content, who have extensive experience in several Arab and Western countries. Tamooda looks forward to addressing audiences from different generations and cultural backgrounds, as well as trying to bring Arab issues closer together in the Maghreb and the Levant.
