Nawaat > Innawaation: Creative Media Projects Incubator (Tunisia)

العربية

In efforts to develop its multimedia platform, Nawaat.org is opening up to creative forces in the domains of art and technology in order to offer more innovative content. They are calling on artists, multimedia technicians, developers, web architects, designers and, of course, journalists to join them in their efforts.

Innawaation is a creative media projects incubator structured around a series of residencies and events. These collaborations will take place during sessions that span 3 to 6 months of work, and will be presented online or during exhibitions. For these residencies/collaborations, Nawaat will provide participants with a production budget as well as individual support in order to develop projects and other media content, notably in close collaboration with its permanent team. Nawaat’s technical and logistical infrastructure plus its human resources will also be available to participants.

Objectives:

  • Strengthen the links between art, journalism, new technologies and social and citizen engagement.

  • Establish a tradition that involves artists, journalists and techies in a participative and immersive approach.

  • Rethink quality journalism and introduce creative tools through arts and technologies.

  • Bring artists to take part in citizen and media action.

  • Promote access to artistic and cultural content.

Innawaation is looking for:

  • Artists and techies across all disciplines.

  • Residents or nationals of Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt and Lebanon.

  • Professionals available during programmed sessions for a minimum period of 3 months (between September, October, November, December).

  • Individuals with a minimum of 5 years experience in the disciplines and domains cited above.

  • Individuals between the ages of 25 – 45 years old.

Candidates can respond individually or collectively. Lodging and travel expenses outside of Tunisia are not covered. Artistic projects developed during the residencies and sessions must culminate in a creation that will be presented to the public through Nawaat’s various outlets (web, magazine, exhibitions and other events).

Nawaat will provide residents with:

  • Honorariums ranging between 3000 – 5000 Tunisian dinars (~1080-1800 USD).

  • Workplace, amenities and miscellaneous expenses.

  • Technical and logistical resources (depending on availability).
