Missions and objectives

– Focus on digital transformation and its impact on international cultural relations (looking at the impact of the global COVID-19 crisis on international cultural relations). What are the new possibilities of international cultural relations? What are the new policy recommendations and strategies on the topic of Digital Cultural Relations? How can digital technologies provide new opportunities to produce and preserve cultural content, facilitate cultural cooperation, bring new forms of international connections between artists, Professionals in Culture and International Cultural Organisations?

– Protection of cultural diversity. How can inter-ethnic cooperation be more open and that this program allow stereotypes to break down and help to develop a reflexive self-identity. How minorities can act as a bridge between countries and peoples; an asset in cross-border cooperation and eliminating isolation between groups.

As a project manager at the Tunis International Center for the Digital Cultural Economy, I am currently working on an exchange artistic residency program between Tunisia and Hungary. The program aims: to strengthen the existing exchange between Hungary & Tunisia; supporting and encouraging contemporary visual arts and promoting international exchange between others countries from worldwide & Tunisia ; to facilitate the exchange of ideas through artistic practice in the areas of visual arts, performance, photography and video.
