- Name of organisation / initiative supported: L’Association Culturelle Badil (L’Alternative)
- Start date: 31 July 2019
- End date: 31 July 2020
L’Alternative is a nascent, youth-led alternative online platform in Tunisia that produces alternative audio-visual content for the youth, and by the youth, to voice their concerns and challenge sociocultural norms.
The platform seeks to forge a space for the inclusion of youth in the current Tunisian media landscape and to empower young people to create a positive change in their communities through artistic means. With EED’s support the initiative will increase the production of inspirational stories of activists and CSOs, the broadcasting of “Live Sessions” of independent artists and the coverage of cultural events. It will also introduce webcasts to their platform to discuss minority rights in Tunisia.
