During Thraedable’s workshops with We Youth Organisation in Sfax, many young Tunisians drew the hand of Fatima, or “khamsa” (which means five in Arabic), a symbol of Arab culture believed to provide protection from the eviI eye. This shows that youth culture and traditions do not have to be at odds with each other.
The author of the dark khamsa spent a long time carefully drawing a beautiful hand of Fatima only to suddenly scribble all over it, exhibiting his teenage rebellion through some impulsive strokes of the brush.
50% of gross profits from the sale of this item shared with We Youth Organisation – Sfax, Tunisia.
We Youth is an organisation entirely run by youth, for youth. Starting from the belief that the basis of a brighter Tunisian future lies among the youth, the organisation works to unlock such potential by promoting active citizenship among young people.
The funds raised through the sale of the “WeYouth” line will help the realisation of an innovative project designed by WeYouth: the Youth Innovation Hub, an incubator for student committees within high-schools. Turning high-schoolers into active citizens today, means enabling a truly functioning democracy tomorrow.
