Houssem Abida


Heritage dosen’t mean museums and just old souvenirs. Heritage is daily evolution and : That’s something Interferences Festival prooved to me last year, and encouraged me to mork more on this point with all tools possible. In fact, all projects in the medina are strongly linked. For example, during Interferences festival, the number of views of Wikipedia articles our team in MedinaPedia wrote increased enormously and helped us reach our main goal which is to make people know more about heritage. And that’s why we want to repeat the experience this year with Djerba.
