Artists facing freedom - Tunis international roundtable

In April 2015, a few after the terrorist attack at the Bardo Museum in Tunis, Arts Cabinet organised a roundtable discussion in partnership with the local organisation l'Art Rue, involving artists, curators, critics, academics, cultural practitioners and funders from Tunisia - as well as participants from Edinburgh University, College of Art, the Danish Cultural Institute, EUNIC Global and the Norwegian fund, Mimeta.
The main aim of the workshop was to understand the cultural context in Tunisia and to explore ways in which collaboration could be developed. The need expressed was that collaboration should be done directly between artists and organisations and this was the right time to recalibrate relationships.
