L’Art Rue Association in Tunis is pleased to host an online retreat for artists and activists working and organising on feminisms, gender and sexuality, to share their research, ideas and projects in a creative and conversational setup. This is a paid opportunity for people who are from or based in the following countries: Algeria, Austria, Belgium, Egypt, Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Sudan, Syria and Tunisia.
The retreat is part of Tashweesh Festival on conversations and alliances in feminisms. Given Tashweesh’s focus, applications to the online retreat from womxn will be prioritised.
Tashweesh is a multi-locations multidisciplinary art festival aiming to facilitate new feminist alliances and give platform to multidisciplinary art and research practices of intersectional feminism in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. The next edition will take place in the fall of 2022.
Tashweesh is co-funded by Creative Europe and implemented by Beursschouwburg (Belgium), Tanzquartier Wien (Austria), Goethe-Institut Brüssel (Belgium) and L’Art Rue (Tunisia).
The organisers are looking for 16 artists and activists working on feminisms, gender and sexuality, from different practices, who are interested in sharing their work and engaging in a multidisciplinary network.

This can be a short provocation, a reading, a podcast, an extract or a full performance, a viewing, or a presentation of a research, amongst other forms. The medium of the presentation is non-academic and flexible, as long as it is an original work relating to the subject and can be presented in an online format.
The selected applicants will be invited to share their work in the two-day online retreat as well as to participate in closed and public conversations, all of which are happening 3-4 December 2021.
Presenters will be each paid a fee of 580 EUR for their participation in the programme.
