Zamakan

Zamakan

Many of us want to change the reality of their communities: marginalized and neglected communities in which a large proportion of the population is deprived of their basic rights. Changing that reality is conditioned by fighting against all beliefs and affiliations that do not support the recognition of our identity and the roots of our culture.

In a simple first step the association Fanni Raghman Anni announces the start of a new artistic experience that aims to cover the largest possible number of Amazigh Berber regions in Tunisia by an academic research / artistic training / and then the production and distribution of a street theatre performance.

Zamakan is a project made by and for the Amazigh. This is a project about our historical leader, the Berber priestess Kahena. This is a project about the authenticity of the Tunisian identity, a project about our original language; it is a project about rehabilitation and thankfulness for our country.

We are the original people of North Africa, we are the Berbers, we are the Amazigh, we represent a history of over 5,000 years... and we are still here.

The project will support and train local talented youth and put together a group of experts from the minority community with a specific focus on linguistic issues.

Implementing Organisation: 

Fanni Raghman Anni (FRA) wants a Tunisia that everyone has contributed to its building process, without discrimination, exclusion and marginalisation. A country where rebellion and revolution are understood, and so are the paths, contexts and setbacks. A country that does not forget its organic and pulsing power. FRA emphasizes that the emerging, unfolding, active and new voices must be heard, regardless of the organisations they belong to, and of their gender and ways of existing. They are the voices that emerged, grew and contributed to ignite the spark of the uprising; the voices that reaffirmed their presence through audiovisual means with innovative and creative styles and tools that shed every sort of light on something that had been broken: marginalisation in all of its shapes. FRA believes that strategies advocating for human rights must rely on creativity and innovation and must bring about development and progress, in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
