The youth who dream and create change

Organisation :Kraten Association for the Sustainable Development of Culture and Leisure (AKDDCL)

Name of the project : The youth who dream and create change

Country : Kerkennah– Tunisia


Description of the project :

This project comes within the framework of our support for the fishermen of the island who still maintain artisanal fishing as the only source of income and still resist the delinquencies towards fishing by trawling destructive to our biodiversity and maritime wealth. It consists of making murals and graffiti on the facades and buildings of the fishing port of Kraten whose theme is the promotion of artisanal fishing. We want to introduce art as a tool of resistance and advocacy to a cause for which our fishermen have always fought. Artists (members of the union of plastic artists) will produce the murals in collaboration with young people and volunteer fishermen from the region who will take care of the painting of the port buildings. 3 Building maintenance and port cleaning actions will be carried out in collaboration with the municipality of Kerkennah and the port administration. All this will be accompanied by a media campaign that will serve us both as a scale for the cause that the fishermen hold dear (resistance to trawling) but also to promote the islands of Kerkennah and its area. EST as an ecological tourism destination. Collaboration between different actors from civil society, administrations and young people would be an asset to better anticipate voluntary work and local citizen participation. Various workshops and activities will take place throughout the project to anticipate the social inclusion of young people and fishermen and ensure the familiarization of the various actors who will work together to achieve this masterpiece.
