تشویش Tashweesh aims to facilitate new alliances and create new perspectives on contemporary feminism in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. The project builds upon the experience of Tashweesh (2018), a multidisciplinary arts festival inviting artists, activists, thinkers on feminism. For the development of the project content, the partners work with two co-curators, Tania El Khoury and Bochra Triki. تشویش Tashweesh will conclude in three festivals held in three different cities of the project, Brussels, Vienna and Tunis. 


As part of the next edition of the Tashweesh festival which will take place in the fall of 2022, L'Art Rue in Tunis is organizing an online retreat on December 3 and 4, 2021 for artists and activists working on issues of feminism, gender and sexualities. During this meeting, participants will have the opportunity to share their research, ideas and projects as well as interact with other candidates and experts and with the co-curators of Tashweesh 2022, Tania El Khoury and Bochra Triki.
