Tfanen - Creation and dissemination grants

Guidelines for the "Creation Grant"

When and where?

Partners +

The cultural and creative sectors are particularly affected by the current global crisis caused by the COVID-19. In Tunisia, this has resulted in the cancellation or postponement of hundreds of cultural activities or festivals. Cultural operators, especially artists, have experienced the same frustration as elsewhere due to this loss of freedom. Indeed, many artists have been confronted with a significant budget deficit caused by the extreme difficulty or impossibility of carrying out their activities. It therefore seems urgent to revitalise the relationship between cultural operators and society at large. 


It is in this context that the "creation grants" will be awarded via a call for applications, as part of a joint action between Tfanen and L'Art Rue for a crisis support to the Tunisian cultural sector. 



The "creation grants" are an action initiated and financed by Tfanen -Tunisie Créative, which is a support programme for the reinforcement of the Tunisian cultural sector, financed by the European Union in collaboration with the EUNIC network, and implemented by the British Council. 


This action is implemented by the association L'Art Rue, which is a space for creation, experimentation and research between practices and cultures.

This action is implemented by the association L'Art Rue, which is a space for creation, experimentation and research between practices and cultures. After the meeting of the "Tfanen Creation Grants" selection jury on 1 March 2022, 16 projects were selected to receive a grant.
