Who we are ?

BACKGROUND

In the 1990s, during an atmosphere of political tension, a large part of cultural actors and intellectuals abandoned their roles in cultural field and get engaged in the brutal repression political system. That led to the retreat of the access to culture in Tunisia and its role in social change. That led also to the creation of “no-where” for public spaces where it is not permitted to practice cultural and artistic rights.

In 17 December / 14 January 2011, Interior regions and public spaces embraced new artistic and cultural practices such as Graffiti wall manuscripts bearing revolutionary slogans reclaiming freedom and denouncing dictatorship. From the depth of perception and sense of marginalization and our insistence on the production of alternative cultural expressions to promote human rights mainly cultural rights, A new cultural youth movement “FanniRaghmanAnni” was established in 2011, using alternative artistic expressions for social change.

THE VISION

An equal Tunisian society without marginalization, enjoying its cultural rights.

MISSION

An independent cultural association was established in 2013 in Tunis and works to revitalize the Tunisian street as an open space for political, artistic and cultural expression by developing the artistic capacities of talented young people of both sexes in the popular and marginalized neighborhoods, supporting them to develop and strengthen their knowledge’s and provide them with opportunities to produce interactive performances exposing their realities.

OUR WAYS

We are stick to the necessity of creating and innovating new forms in order to have a struggling line based on achieving further progress and development with dimensions contained in the philosophy and literature emanating from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

  1. Benefit from experiences :Our project” my art in spite of me” IS A CLEAR example about what can be produced by active marginalized categories ,it is a model of an organized activity and interactively among an elite that want to be present and to come out with useful lessons lessons le show that the work according to the human rights approach with new actors and with the audience masses in depth achieve higher values of citizenship democracy and social interaction.
  2. Using expressive cinematic notions: We have adopted the term “my right” in all our projects and activities to be accomplished. because it expresses our will to spread the culture of human rights and the approaches based on participation and participatory and we consider the process in its entirety mechanism as a way to enhance forms of struggling, human rights d democratic practice and the act of citizenship .
  3. Permanent rooting for concepts: Such as implanting the values of citizenship and democracy among new activists to make it a tradition .in all the projects of our Association “my art in spite of me “.
  4. Work and development: A culture of human rights is useless to its citizens if it does not serve humanitarian issues .and it has no meaning if it tries to find solutions without the participation of all citizens.
  5. Framing new young activists in the civil, social and cultural movement: Because of the contradictions that will emerge in this transitional period we will be present innovative, effective and efficient ways. to frame new activists to take advantage of the activities and programs of the association or to achieve the positive participation of this .and through the success of the experience of street arts we decided to continue developing this experience by creating specialized groups .
