Tunis Creative Retreat

Overview

Our cities and towns are densely packed with portals to the past in the form of museums, ruins, cathedrals, mosques, castles, palaces, and a variety of other structures. Our lives are also filled with portals to the past through family stories, food, fashion, ceramics, textiles, music and so on.

 

So how can we maintain this portal open for future generations to experience their past, which is now? How can we use technological advancement to preserve our traditions and crafts for future generations?

During this retreat, we explored through a journey of four days various places, techniques, and crafts utilizing ancient and new approaches to challenge ourselves, learn and connect.
