Détails de l'opportunité

1. Context:
1.1. General presentation:
The programme to support the strengthening of the Tunisian cultural sector (Tfanen – Tunisie Créative) is part of the programme to support the cultural sector in Tunisia (PACT) launched by the European Union (EU) in partnership with the Tunisian government , which aims to support the redefinition of the cultural policy and the restructuring of the cultural sector in the context of the new governance that Tunisia is currently experiencing. A total budget of € 9.7 million has been allocated for the implementation of this bilateral program.
Tfanen comprises a strong capacity building and grant mechanism approach and engages with a wide variety of stakeholders: ministries, decentralised public bodies, cultural professionals and civil society organisations. The project started in June 2016 for an initial duration of 36 months. In 2018 the project was extended for an additional
period of 6 months and has been re-extended to November 2021.
1.2. Objectives of Tfanen Tunisie-Créative
In a context of an institutional decentralisation and a generalisation of citizen engagement, the programme to support the strengthening of the Tunisian cultural sector (PACT) aims to contribute in the sustainable consolidation of democracy and economic prosperity in Tunisia, by enabling the contribution of culture in social
cohesion at local, regional and national levels.
The two specific objectives of Tfanen – Tunisie Créative are:
• Promote Tunisian cultural diversity and access to culture at local, national and international level;
• Support the freedom of expression and creation, mainly within new generations, and encourage the professionalization of cultural professions.
Tfanen – Tunisie Créative aims to increase the attractiveness and access to culture,  as well as to promote new initiatives and productions, stimulate creativity and allow the emergence of new generations of artists. It aims to reinforce a local collaborative approach and to contribute to the emergence of a cultural and social ecosystem in
which all the actors (citizens, civil society, private sector and public institutions) have their place and are actively involved. This will involve improving coordination between the various fields and initiatives, institutions and actors. A process of strengthening local capacities in terms of cultural and social awareness, creativity,
cultural management and cultural entrepreneurship is being initiated for this purpose.
Tfanen – Tunisie Créative also aims to allow Tunisian citizens, mainly youth, to participate in and benefit from a culture based on local, regional and national values and components, in the process of democratisation of Tunisian society.
2. Tfanen intervention logic:
To achieve the mentioned objectives, Tfanen follows a specific theory of change ToC that details various options of “paths leading to change”, in line with the British Council’s approach to culture as a driver of societal change and sustainable
development. The theory of change has been translated into concrete work strands as detailed below.
Tfanen provides financial and technical support to local cultural actors (civil society, public and private sectors, artists) through a combination of grant-making, training, learning and sharing, coaching, mentoring, and policy advice. Since 2016, Tfanen has subsidised 88 projects that enhance local cultural engagement, young artists’
creativity, festivals’ sustainability and preservation of heritage. It has also delivered structural funds (i.e. core funding to cover functioning and investment costs) to 7 cultural organisations allowing them to enhance internal capabilities, enlarge external audiences, professionalise their actions and contribute to the strengthening of the
cultural ecosystem. Technical assistance takes place through regional and thematic laboratories (Labs) of learning and sharing which engage cultural actors in a participatory and multidisciplinary co-construction of public policies. Tfanen also provides mentorship sessions, workshops, networking events and professionalisation
programmes to cultural actors.
Additionally, in collaboration with the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, Tfanen supports the design and implementation of reform and structuring projects within decentralised public institutions.
