Culture Resource is accepting applications until October 16 for the Sixth workshop to be held as part of the Tunisia Balad El Fann program. Applications are sought from artists and organizations in the areas of Medenine, Tataouine, Kebili and Gabes. Tunisia Balad El Fann is a joint project of Cultural Resource and the Tunisian Ministry of Culture, that aims to raise the capacity and skills of cultural actors in both the independent and state cultural sectors, as well as promote the decentralization of cultural activities and encourage cultural projects in a range of Tunisian cities.
The first phase of the Tunisia Balad El Fann consists of six cultural management training workshops in six different Tunisian governorates, with 20 participants in each workshop. Trainees will be evenly split between employees selected from state-operated cultural entities and those working in the independent cultural sector. A final workshop will be dedicated to training of trainers, with 10 participants selected from those who have taken part in the previous six workshops. All workshops will take place in Ministry of Culture facilities throughout various Tunisian governorates. The second phase will consist of grants to support approximately 30 cultural projects, with an expected average of five projects in each of the targeted areas.
