CAWTAR/Forma Camera Project: Tunisian and Italian handicrafts between culture and entrepreneuship

As part of an exchange project initiated by the Arab Women’s Centre for Training and Research (CAWTAR) and the special training agency of the Rome Chamber of Commerce “Forma Camera,” ten young Italian and Tunisian craftmen gathered to discover, appreciate and draw inspiration from artistic handicrafts both in Tunisia and Italy.

The project “Italy-Tunisia: Handicrafts between Culture and Entrepreneurship” was financed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation with the support of the Tunisian Agency for Vocational Training (ATFP).

It has helped young craftwomen to be trained in entrepreneurship and networking training in addition to the transfer of know-how in various specialties of artistic crafts: jewelery, ceramics, fashion and design.

Ten Italian and Tunisian craftwomen have been able to discover another craft and productive culture, outside their local context. Through this project, they have achieved a training experience of the social and cultural aspects of social inclusion and employability in the respective host countries, an experience that will help them participate actively in gender policies and the production dynamics and professional integration established between Italy and Tunisia.

The participants in the project, who had been selected following a call for applications, were all unanimous in calling for the continuation of this experience and extending the duration of the training sessions to allow an even more rich sharing of expertise and innovative ideas.

The visits made by the Tunisian and Italian craftwomen offered the occasion to learn about the needs of the market in both countries. The project brought a panoramic view of the various aspects of the handicrafts sector, on both sides of the Mediterranean, at the level of production and marketing techniques.
