Cultural Initiatives in North Africa and the Middle East
The project consists in the publication of a digital Book including audio-visual links with one of the specialized digital publishing companies.
The book is of 35000 words and comprises tens of audio-visual links of songs, video-clips, paintings, passages from theatre plays, TV shows and dance performances, all of which are exclusively Tunisian.
The initial title of the book is “العودة إلى العصر الحجْري: كتابة في زمن الوباء” . It is a collection of diaries seeking a form of poetic explorations, along with digging into the esoteric conditions and depth of the Self, and the relation thereof with what the creative mind undergoes during quarantine to get rid of the New Corona Virus.
This aim of this project is to achieve an interactive readability that would enable viewers to access information, ideas and arts pertaining to Tunisia, through the written, auditory and visual representation thereof.
On another perspective, the project aspires to reach a dynamism conducive to achieving an easy and fluid movement of digital books from one place to other, in a way that transcends border crossing procedures and time constrains. Its convertibility allows digital books to move from one medium to the other, make its movement and download easy and applicable to different devices and enhances its popularity and distribution all over the world and across difference classes and categories of people.
The book is to be published with digital book publishing company and then distributed to popular online websites and platforms through Amazon Search Engine.
