Giving concerts throughout Tunisia, young musicians are interpreting traditional Tunisian and international pieces alongside their own works. In so doing, they are occasionally accompanied by renowned artists. With the foundation of extracurricular music clubs in all 24 governorates of Tunisia, a space has opened up to schoolchildren where they can be creative and learn to independently pursue their own goals.
‘Tunisia88 – Music for Impact’ is under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Tunisia. Through a cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Education, the project is integrated into existing state structures, leading to its broad acceptance among parents and in schools. In the long term, the project is expected to be integrated into school curriculum. Plus, by strengthening these participatory approaches, the school system is supported in its modernisation efforts.
ifa’s partners include Action et Développement Solidaire in Tunisia and 88 International in the United States of America. Together, these organisations make this project possible by organising the music clubs’ founding events, training courses, regional, national and international concerts, events and competitions as well as by distributing musical instruments to schools.
Since July 2019, ifa has been supporting the project with funding from the German Federal Foreign Office.
