creatives from more than 30 countries have come together to participate in the ‘djerbahood‘ project on the island of djerba, tunisia, which has seen the transformation of the historic village into a vibrant open air art museum. 150 street artists have left their mark on the ancient city’s walls and doors, infilling the town with both large and small-scale murals for both inhabitants and tourists to experience and enjoy. stencils, paintings, graffiti, and monumental works canvassing buildings’ facades are a few of those scattered throughout the landscape, with community and culturally influenced works adorning the urban sites. 

 

presented by paris-based galerie itinerrance, the project’s invitation of internationally recognized artists to the otherwise local north african village has seen its creative revitalization, and has allowed for an emergence of art and design within the community.
