El Warcha, means workshop in Arabic, it is a collective and maker-space founded in 2016 in the medina of Tunis, Tunisia. It aims to promote alternative forms of education and civic actions through the making of urban furniture and art installations. The idea of learning by making is central to this practice and all the activities revolve around live projects. We regularly work on partnerships with other organizations on public art and participative projects, we also take on private commissions. In the last few years the project established itself in Tottenham (north London), Lisbon and Davis (CA) working towards a trans-local community of like-minded creative practitioners across three continents.
