The association Sentiers-Massarib was created in May 2017. It is a cultural association that aims to the construction of a public space for debate and intellectual inquiry. Sentiers-Massarib works on the dissemination of film culture, and more generally, image culture by organizing events like film screenings, film creation workshops, reading of the image and film critic workshops as part of itinerant actions mainly unfolding in certain regions of Tunisia that are rather marginalized in terms of access to art and culture.
What underlies all of Sentiers’ actions is a vision that places art and representation at the heart of the democratic and political question, not by making art the simple instrument of social and citizen engagement, but rather by considering creation as a political act in itself, where aesthetics are each time the singular expression of the common life which also is forged and built in artistic and essentially cinematographic practice, given the importance of the image and the democratization of the tools that capture it. This is why our activities are conceived essentially on a participative mode that makes the public and more precisely the young public an agent taking part in a process of understanding oneself and the world and in a process of creation.
