Darat al funun amman 2014

Nathalie Rosa Bucher

For the past 9 years, I've been a features writer with a passion for the seventh art, a keen interest in culture and mobility, as well as social and environmental subjects. Besides writing, I've also worked on many projects in the fields of arts and culture, notably a circus, puppet companies, I organised film festivals and screenings as well as ran a mobile cinema project. Half French, half German by origin possibly explains why I'm drawn to divided countries and diverse societies: Cape Town in South Africa was my home for 15 years before I came to Beirut in Lebanon in early 2012. I love hiking, music, cycling, cooking and travelling and look forward to take you on more routes around the Eastern Mediterranean.
