The Siwa Plateforme is a community-run cultural centre which was set up in Redeyef, Tunisia in the aftermath of the 2011 revolution with the aim of empowering local youth, promoting social cohesion and community mobilisation through cultural activities. The premises of the centre are in an abandoned building that belongs to the Gafsa Phosphate Company (GPC). The building was inaugurated as a local cultural centre in 2014 and has since become a one of a kind space for young citizens to developing the necessary tools to develop their talent. With EED’s support, the Siwa Platform will refurbish L’Economat building in order to better accommodate visitors and to be able to resume their activities at full capacity.
