4.3 Local context and complementarity of the project with other regional, national and local policies/ measures/ programmes/ projects: 
Tamasi is a collective of 11 organisations working in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan & Palestine. members are: Elwarsha Theatre Troupe, International Association for creativity & training, Studio EmadEddin, Temple Independent Theatre Company, Elmastaba Centre for Egyptian Folk Music (Egypt), Shams Association & Arab Theatre Training Centre (Lebanon), Elfunoun Palestinian Popular Dance Troupe, Alharah Theatre & Theatre Day Productions (Palestine -Weste Bank & Gaza) & Albalad Theatre (Jordan). In 2014, Tamasi Collective (the applicant) underwent a thorough analysis of the needs, challenges & opportunities for the cultural sector in MENA. This research was conducted in collaboration with =mc UK; a specialised agency in developing the expertise of NGOs & the Not-for-Profit sector globally. it was based on a combination of desk research, field visits to the four countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine & Jordan), interviews with key cultural activists, policy makers & artists; focus group discussions with samples from the audiences & different communities, international donors, local supporters -especially the corporate/private sector- & others. This research confirmed our findings & analysis based on our long experience & operational presence on the ground as a collective for the past 8 years: Whereas there is a plethora of independent arts groups & organisations & an increasing interest in the performing arts, the challenges are many. Two main challenges have been identified: 1. The organisational, management & fundraising capacity of the independent arts sector. This means that pursuing a career in the performing arts sector is not really a viable option for many of those artists interested & keen on doing so. It also means that the investment in the sector -whether at the level of governments or corporate investment remains inadequate. On the other hand, the policy & legislative environments regarding the arts & culture, especially the independent arts sector are restricting & off putting to both cultural practitioners & operators as well as any potential investors. In addition, the lack of management, entrepreneurial & fundraising expertise in the sector is also a compounding factor. It thus becomes a catch 22 situation. Therefore, the project aims to address these two issues: On the one hand, we aim to provide the necessary tools & skills to the independent arts sector in the areas that were identified as a gap. On the other hand, it aims to address reform in the policy & legislative environments.
The Tamasi Collective -the applicant- has been a key player in addressing these issues for the past 8 years in the region. Tamasi members run an extensive capacity building program that provides: Workshops, trainings, on the job training, residencies & mentoring. We also run the only centre providing a specialised vocational training & certificate in MENA in the performing arts: The Palestinian Performing Arts Sector (PARC). In addition, we provide burgeoning artists with funding opportunities, production grants as well as the opportunity to show case their work in 7 regional festivals organised & run by Tamasi members. At the level of the independent arts sector, the initiatives aiming to address the previously described issues can be quite disbursed.However, Tamasi Collective is in contact with & collaborates & compliments several of the current initiatives. This collaboration has been in the form of: technical input & consolation as well as direct provision of services including training, module development &/ or presentations. This is not an exhaustive list but some are: The British Council Egypt initiative to develop a specialised training unit. Cairo University Diploma on Cultural Management Faculty of Arts) , The Dutch Embassy's Evaluation on the role of arts & culture in development, AlMawrid Althzqafy's trainings & cultural policy initiatives.

Please explain: 
Tamasi members have consistently achieved a 50/50 female to male ratio participation across all our outputs. The research conducted by Tamasi in 2014 shows that increasingly young women are keen on pursuing the Arts & Culture -especially the performing arts- as a career option. One of the main challenges is the lack of capacity. In our trainings, we aim to achieve an equal gender balance. We also target young females for post training internships, mentorship & exposure opportunities.
Empowerment of youth: 
Yes
Country: 
Egypt
Please explain: 
The capacity building component of the project targets youths from 18--30 years in the four countries. This component does not only provide trainings but also post training opportunities in the form of internships & mentorship. Our past record speaks for itself. On average per annum, Tamasi provides 35 career opportunities; supports 19 burgeoning artists to establish sustainable artistic groups & provides 600 training opportunities to youths & young adults

Promotion of South-South/North-South-South cooperation: 
Yes
Please explain: 
Tamasi is committed to strengthening collaboration especially South-South collaboration as well as North-South-South. For in addition to the sharing of knowledge, experience & expertise, this collaboration encourages true dialogue with & acceptance of the 'other' & challenges cultural stereotypes. Tamasi has a long record of these collaborations across all areas of its outputs. For this particular project: At the level of capacity building: Participants will be from across the Arabic speaking MENA region. Tamasi will provide a 'Training of Trainers' for a group of 10 trainees from across the Region. This will be done in collaboration with identified experts from the North. The trainees, who will become future trainers, will provide similar trainings across the region in collaboration with performing arts organisations & networks across MENA. At the level of advocacy & policy, all dialogue & seminar events will include case studies & speakers from across the region as well as from the global North. Recommendations, analysis & recordings will be disseminated globally as well as within the region using different media platforms as well as through conferences congresses (ISPA, APAP, Roberto Cimetta Fund & others)
Participation of various social groups in the areas of intervention of the IFCD: 
Yes

Please explain: 
Tamasi specifically targets marginalised & underserved communities. These can be the culturally, ethnically, politically &/or religiously marginalised or underserved in terms of access to arts & culture. 40% of our entire output has targeted the marginalised & underserved. For the capacity building program, we apply a strictly meritocratic procedure. We put in place special criteria for the underserved & marginalised. We also ensure that our dissemination, application & acceptance procedures are friendly & accessible to marginalised & unreserved groups. This includes the language used in the applications, ways & platforms for dissemination, providing transportation & culturally sensitive accommodation arrangements. Our trainings have a regional outreach, therefore trainings will have different participants from across the region. Our past trainings included participants from: Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan & Morocco. A sample of our trainings can be viewed on:http://tamasicollective.org/NewsDetails.aspx?NewsId=23

Result: 
RESULT 1
Description: 
Entrepreneurial, management & fundraising capacity of the performing Arts Sector strengthened. In 2014, Tamasi conducted a regional assessment to help it develop its strategic plan for 2016--2020. The assessment identified the opportunities, challenges & gaps facing the performing arts sector in 4 countries in MENA (Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine & Jordan). Two inter-related areas that needed strengthening have been repeatedly identified by all stakeholders: 1. The capacity of the performing arts sector -especially the independent sector - in the areas of fundraising, management & entrepreneurship 2. The lack of investment in the arts sector generally & the independent performing arts sector in particular due to this gap in management, marketing & entrepreneurial skills as well as the restrictive legal & policy frameworks. Therefore the project has two components to address this gap. This result relates to strengthening and indeed developing a cohort of independent arts groups & organisations that have the adequate management & entrepreneurial skills. These will form the nucleus of the future leadership for the sector.

Result: 
RESULT 2
Description: 
The legal & policy frameworks governing the independent arts sector in MENA re-assessed/ changed. The gaps identified above relate to the restrictive legal & policy frameworks governing the independent arts sector in MENA. We are not only referring to specific laws & regulations but also to the general discourse, philosophy & thinking governing these laws & regulations. As an example, in 2015, Tamasi engaged policy makers, education ministry, activists & teachers in discussing & highlighting what we called the "Radicalisation element in the educational curriculum in Jordan". The event presented studies & analysis on how the educational curriculum at the school level (primary to secondary) actually encourages radicalisation. It presented research & case studies on how including arts & culture in the educational curricula can counteract this & the need to change the content & philosophy. It also came up with specific recommendations. This comprises the second component of this project: A series of advocacy events to address policy issues relating to the role of the independent arts & culture sector in Egypt, Jordan, Palestine & Lebanon. These will be held within our regional festivals in these countries. Tamasi members organise & run 7 major independent arts festivals in the four countries per annum which will ensure maximum interest & exposure.

Sustainability: 

Sustainability in projects should be considered in relation to ongoing results, effects and outcomes of the project. Sustainability is about:

  1. Building relationships on an on-going basis – through communication, building trust, reciprocity and showing commitment;
  2. Developing diverse funding sources – including grants, fees for services, volunteers, donations, active fundraising campaigns, etc.;
  3. Being flexible – capacity to accommodate change by incorporating on-going evaluation into project evaluation.
What measures/steps will you put in place to ensure that your project long-term objectives can be met? : 
This project is part of Tamasi's strategy for 2016--2020. The trainings will eventually form an earned income stream for Tamasi contributing to the diversification of funding. Tamasi has a wide network of collaborators globally & regionally & will present & encourage collaborators to contribute to & invest in this project long-term. It is also our aim as a follow up to this project to develop a "cultural incubator" program that will provide a one stop shop legal aid, administrative support & working space for burgeoning independent performing arts groups. We also collaborate closely with the wider civil society including women's rights organisations & development agencies as well as local municipalities.
What measures/steps will you take to follow up with the beneficiaries of the project after its completion?: 
Through our capacity building program, we will be able to provide internship opportunities & on the job training for trainees across our wide network. Our capacity building model is based on long-term engagement with trainees to provide on-going support. Trainees will also become mentors & trainers in their own right & will be engaged in Tamasi's ongoing capacity building program. They also are offered volunteering placements in other activities.
