The collaboration between Italy and Tunisia in the art and fashion sector is strengthening. Open Art Week (Oaw), the international independent art week, whose title this year is “My future”, will be staged from 5 November to 3 December. This year, the curators have chosen to critically and creatively reshape on web platforms and social networks the initiatives of the 2020 edition.

The event, as reported by the website “8Colonne”, was realized thanks to the support of and partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute of Tunis and D&B Consulting, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in Tunis, the Swiss Embassy in Tunisia, the Tunisian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Olimpias Group, Ied-European Institute of Design and Esmod Tunisie.
