Explain your idea in details:
We want to organize different artistic concerts (music, theater, dance, etc) on the rooftops of the old houses of the historical city of Tunis. The interesting part about the idea is that the shows must be diverse and not only related to the tunisian artistic heritage . We want to make the old city a cultural center not just a museum where you can see tunisian old fashioned arts. Also, a part of the incomes of the shows will help restore the roof-tops and plant plants on them.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Such events will help attracting not only more tourists to the old city but also tunisians with different artistic tastes. Citizens won't see this UNESCO world heritage site as a monument they show for visitors or to introduce to their children as part of the national history, but also as a modern cultural center where they can find all. And as a result, this will create a boost for the economy of the old city especially in the evening because the concerts will take place in the evening. So this will encourage restaurants and shops to stay open for a late hour and recieve a bigger number of customers. Moreover, the more we have concerts, the more we make deals with house owners and this will help restore more roof-tops and plant more plants on them.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
First, I will need to make a deal with one of the houses owners in the old city of Tunis. Then, I will do the same with the artist I want to make me a concert. I will pay both of these and the audio logistics with the selling tickets income. A part of these incomes will be kept to restore the roof top with the help of an NGO working of restoring monuments, and plant some plants with the help of another NGO workiing of environment protection.
I am 21 years old. I am a 3rd year medical student in the Medicine School of Tunis. I am passionate about tunisian cultural heritage and I want to change the way people here see it. I want them to see it not just as a site they can visit for sightseeing or museums. I want it to be a source for inspiration for them for innovative economic ideas. I want the historical cities to produce art, contribue in the economic growth and help making their citizens life better. That's why I am member and founder of some NGOs and projects that work on this field.I recently also participated in the Youth Leadership Programme organized by the United Nations Development Programme and I was one the the 12 finalists in the arab world.
