CULTURE - Crucible of civilisation
Survey written by Anver Versi
On the African continent, where the cultural crisis is most acute, Tunisia and Egypt are the rare exceptions. Both have very deep histories and both have worked tirelessly to keep their histories as fresh as possible. But culture is not only about ancient history; it is the story of how people adapt and change as events around them change. It is about evolution and unbroken identity. Well aware of the enormous resources that European countries and the US pour into their own cultural spheres, Tunisia has embarked on a unified national strategy to maintain and deepen its cultural identity. President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali has decided that over the next four years to 2004, a full one percent of GDP will go to culture. The annual budget for culture is expected to grow from $45m in 1999 to $140m in 2004. Budgetary allocation is as follows: Cultural exhibitions (24%); museums and institutions (20%); cinema (14%); literature (14%), theatre (9%) and poetry (4%). Custodian of world history The park will contain six segments: the ancient city of Carthage; La Marsa nature park, Sidi Bou Said village, the gardens of Hamilcar, the Yasmina sports and leisure park and the Carthage coast. One of the first projects will be a $3m memorial to Hannibal, one of the greatest generals of all times, who took 40,000 men and 38 elephants over the Alps to punish Rome. Next in line is a $5m reconstruction of the ancient Punic port, seat of one of the most extensive commercial networks of the old world.

Tunisian Culture
Foremost, I will always think of Tunisia as the land of the blue doors. I could do a whole web page on its blue doors, but I'll spare you and just show a typical happy door:
The other very depressing impression I took away from Tunisia is the oppressive dictatorship of Ben Ali. He came to power by force, and has been oppressing his citizens ever since. There are about as many propaganda posters in the country bearing a 20 year old picture of him as there are blue doors in Tunisia. Here's one example:
It's such a blatant dictatorship thinly veiled as a democracy you have to wonder why they even bother with the freedom ruse. Although there is religious freedom, otherwise it's like mob rule. All businesses are offered to "buy" a picture of Ben Ali for whatever amount you think is appropriate which the government "suggests" you hang in a prominent place in your store. If you don't, you tend to get fined for health and safety violations or something similar:
If your lack of party support persists you'll eventually find yourself in jail. The press consists of two state run television stations and a few "independent" newspapers, but the newspapers have to submit every edition for review, and therefore the news is hardly unbiased. You can get some foreign newspapers such as Le Mond, but they're too expensive for most Tunisians and the government limits the circulation anyway to disable widespread reading. The internet is censored too, although the New York Times' web site is available. ( is blocked.) But even with all this government control, Tunisians don't really seem to care. They have religious freedom and can afford sheesha, cigarettes and mint tea so it's not worthwhile to try and change things. There are definitely more worthy places in the world for

Culture Tunisian Culture The Berbers were the original inhabitants of Tunisia, but waves of immigration over the centuries have brought Phoenicians, Jews, Romans, Vandals and Arabs. There was a major influx of Spanish Muslims in the 17th century, and the Ottoman Turks have also added their bit to the great ethnic mix. Islam is the state religion. Although while there has been a definite resurgence of religious adherence, particularly among the young and unemployed, the country remains fairly liberal. A small Jewish community practices in Tunis and on the island of Jerba, and there are also about 20,000 Roman Catholics. Thanks largely to the efforts of the secular, socialist former president, Habib Bourguiba, conditions for women in Tunisia are better than just about anywhere in the Islamic world - to western eyes, at least. Bourguiba outlawed polygamy and divorce by renunciation, and also placed limits on the tradition of arranging marriages, setting a minimum marriage age of 17 for girls and giving them the right to refuse a proposed marriage. His calling the veil 'an odious rag' led to its present state of scarcity. Still, ancient traditions die hard, and women travellers are well advised to keep their upper arms and shoulders covered and to opt for long skirts or trousers. Men wearing shorts are considered to be in their underwear and can sometimes incite indignation as well. Public displays of affection are frowned upon in most parts of the country.
