Documenting Tunisia's Heritage for future generations: MedinaPedia a project of Carthagina in partnership with Wikimedia TN UG and the Association for the safeguarding of the medina of Tunis. It consisted in digitizing the historical richnesses of the medina of Tunis and bringing them into the world of virtual collective knowledge.

The workshops and meetings took place in various places including the mythical Dar Lasram, headquarters of the Association for the safeguarding of the medina of Tunis. This association provided the MedinaPedia team with the necessary logistical support as well as access to its library.

In the frame of this project, we had 376 articles on Wikipedia in 11 Languages and 3238 images on wikimedia commons. The project was duplicated in many cities: Tunis Av Habib Bourguiba, Sfax, BeniKhalled, Hammamet,...

Diversity in Tunisia

The project includes field research to cover religious and ethnic sites across Tunisia as well as a series of workshops and cultural events that took place in various locations (Medina of Tunis, Carthage, Djerba, Douiret, CapBon, NorthWest,...).
