Six companies of the Nabeul tableware cluster and 4 of the El Jem decoration cluster, part of the EU-funded projet Creative Mediterranean, exhibited their products at the Craftsmanship Creation Fair of Tunis, that took place from the 28 April to the 7 Mai 2017.

Over an area of 25 000 square meters, craftsmen carving wood, working with glass, weavers, copper ware craftsmen, tailors, sculptors, etc., showcased their innovative creations.

As the Tunisian Craftsmanship Creation Fair of Tunis is a commercial fair, the aim of the Tunisians clusters’ participation to this event was to collect money to fund new activities and develop their collections under the banner of Creative Mediterranean.

The objective of the Creative Mediterranean project (Development of Clusters in Cultural and Creative Industries in the Southern Mediterranean), implemented in the framework of the Private sector Development in the Southern Mediterranean Programme, is to foster entrepreneurial co-operation in the cultural and creative industry notably through the promotion of promising pilot initiatives demonstrating contribution to inclusive growth. The project then aims at demonstrating the potential for the national and regional development of cultural and creative industries in the Southern Mediterranean, thus opening the possibility through adequate replication and larger scale support from financial institutions to promote new employment opportunities and inclusive growth in the region.
