Why DEBBO 52 ? 

Debbo 52 is implemented to satisfy real needs of young artist as : 

1- Focus on emerging artists creating, building, and prospering cultural scene at Tunisia and Arab World

2- Offer a chance for emerging artists to gain and sharpen essential skills as well as inspire and be inspired by their fellow artists

What We Need

Through co-working space competition we're asking for $8,000  to empower the already existing co-working spaces "Debbo52". 

The Impact 

Our essential objective is to offer not only a space for artists and young fellows to act and create, we also want to generate a whole culture of co-working and support to all art activities . It’s not only a place where people meet or make their rehearsals , yet , we want  to establish a factory for creativeness and an institute which enriches people’s experiences, ideas and knowledge through shared experiences and continuous trainings. 

Such continuity in activities and events will generate  a refined and well-established bunch of artists who feel that they have the open possibilities and a constant support whenever they want to practice, to find information, experts and learning, as art is a matter of gift as same as an endless effort. Hence, once our project and programming improves and develops , all the groups and individuals we support would benefit and grow their projects with us.  

Other Ways You Can Help 

In addition to cultural funds, to sustain our programming and developing , we rely on participative and alternative financing methods ( crowdfunding and bartering "ARTROC") and charitable contributions.

People who enjoy the work of DEBBO52 and want to help support independent performing artists can make a donation.

Furthermore, donations are tax-deductible which is something that would  encourage local corporate to funding  us and have social corporate responsibility.
