Call for projects: Young Tunisian artists for an artistic training in public space. Deadline 6/06/2014

“Conflicts and Resistance: The Artist Citizen & the Tunisian Public Space”


 Call for projects open to young Tunisian artists for a three-week artistic training in public space
Five candidates will be shortlisted.


November 10th to 28th, 2014 in Tunis
 The FAI-AR, European centre for artistic training in public space, and L’ART RUE association, initiator of the Dream City biennial of contemporary art in Tunis, join forces in order to carry out a 3 weeks long Euro-Mediterranean artistic training on the theme of “Conflicts and Resistance: The Artist Citizen & the Tunisian Public Space”.
From November 10th to 28th, 2014, a group of students mentored by an educational team from the FAI-AR centre are moving to Tunis to work on the challenges of citizenship in the Tunisian political and cultural context. They will be joined by Tunisian interns invited to take part to this training time.
This module falls under the “Fundamentals” of the higher training proposed by FAI-AR. These are sequences of three weeks each, based on the learning of certain skills specific to street art and their site-specific implementation. Constructed upon a precise theme, they are moderated by artists and pedagogues who open up their tool box to transmit their knowledge and experience to the learners. The Fundamentals are complemented by a cycle of conferences, called the research salons, inviting specialists to enlarge the focus of the research and to put in perspective the questions of the training.
Since 2007, L’ART RUE, local partner of this module, has become through the Dream City biennial of contemporary art in public space an unprecedented movement compounded by artists from all horizons gathered to “dream their city and society”. Dream City is a space of artistic inspiration and committed citizenship. It is a tool of mobilisation of the imagination at the service of public liberties, a space of reflection on the role of artists in post-revolutionary Tunisia.
