This chapter focuses on the nature of the street to engage with multiple histories and experiences of the environment. It argues that the visible but ephemeral outdoor museum is a vital site to be explored for its staging of art and Moroccan culture as a potentially conversable civic space. Art festivals are one form of the ephemeral outdoor museum. It explains that the ephemeral outdoor museum can do many things deemed impossible in the confines of a physical museum. With a temporary and mobile site, it has the promise of serendipitous interaction with heterogeneous publics and dislodges the idea that culture is an object to be located in a central static and symbolic temple.
