> About Alhidaya Primary School - Gabes

"Alhidaya" primary school in Gabès includes 1,022 pupils, 55 teachers and 16 classrooms. The space to be transformed was a room dedicated to artistic activities, however it was converted later into a depot.

The Focus Gabès association seeks to develop this space and turn it into a room dedicated to multidisciplinary artistic activities by means of sharing their experience and knowledge in the field of film and visual arts.

The Qismi Al Ahla space was inaugurated at the Alhidaya primary school in November 2023.

> About Qismi Al Ahla

Qismi Al Ahla is a program of L'Art Rue which consists in accompanying and financially supporting regional Tunisian associations to create spaces dedicated to artistic practices within public primary schools.

These spaces, designed by and for children, offer them a stimulating environment to encourage their creativity, imagination and autonomy through artistic expression.

This project aims to make art accessible to children in public primary schools in the region and offers associations the opportunity to get involved in public primary schools through an artistic and civic education project with a protocol, financial support and tailor-made guidance.
