Tunisia Balad El Fann is a one year project conducted by Culture Resource in collaboration with the Tunisian Ministry of Culture that aims to support the independent cultural sector and the decentralization of cultural work and services, and to activate cooperation between independent and governmental organizations that are working in culture.
The first axis of the project is a program of six workshops to be held in six different cities in Tunisia. 20 persons will take part in each workshop, with a total target of 120 workshop participants. Half of the participants will be selected from government employees and half from applicants working in the independent cultural sector. At the conclusion of the six workshops, a final workshop will be held for ten participants selected from among the participants from the different governorates. Workshops will be held at cultural venues managed by the Ministry of Culture in the different governorates of Tunisia. The second axis of the project will be 30 cultural projects, five in each of the six cities. The application process for the project fund will be held separately in each governorate.
