Destiny and Destination
Tunisia - Ongoing project
Client: Comitato Europeo per la Formazione e l'Agricultura - CEFA Onlus
I am currently working on a project about the construction of the individual work identity in North-West Tunisia, the most impoverished region of the country. Since the Jasmin Revolution in 2011, political leaders have preferred to focus on institutional reforms while showing reluctant attitude towards confronting unemployment and spatial disparities in access to opportunities.
The poverty rates stretch from 8% in the center-east region up to 32% in center-west region, while there is a 20% gap between unemployment rates in dominant and underpriviledged governorates.
Concomitantly, a flourishing and high-energetic youth chomps at the bit to re-shape its role in the new post-revolution economy. Some of this vitality is being aimed at creating social and agricultural enterprises in the North-West, the largest farmland area in the country.
This project is about this new generation of farmers and environnemental entrepreneurs and their attempt to turn their destiny into their own destination.
