This report on the current landscape of cultural and creative industries (CCI) in Tunisia gives a brief overview of the economic situation of the country and the salient features of its existing CCI and entrepreneurial ecosystems. A number of key stakeholders are identified including governmental actors, private sector organisations, NGOs and associations, and academic institutions. Additionally, several national and international initiatives impacting CCI are identified. Finally, the report outlines challenges and opportunities within the CCI sector, and gives a series of policy recommendations.
This report is part of the mapping activities under the CREACT4MED project, co-funded by the European Union, though the EuropeAid Programme, and by the Project Partners. The project is led by the Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA).
The exercise involves mapping the current landscape of CCI in the project’s target countries, including desk research, consultation workshops with key CCI stakeholders in each country, and input from the CREACT4MED Technical Expert Group (TEG), which is a multi-disciplinary group of renowned regional and local experts including project partners, external participants, and observers. Five TEG meetings were held between 18 November 2020 and 25 February 2021, and a CCI Stakeholder Workshop in Tunisia was held on 8 April 2021.
CREACT4MED project partners include: the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMED), the Union of Mediterranean Confederations of Enterprises (BUSINESSMED), the Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (IED), the Faculty of Economics and Political Science Business Incubator (FEPS BI), the Med Confederation, Beyond Group, Lumsa University, the Association of Organisations of Mediterranean Businesswomen (AFAEMME), and the Positive Agenda Advisory.
