The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture calls for proposals

The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) is an independent Arab initiative established by local cultural lobbyists and a group of international donors in 2007. The fund has designed specific programs, such as the Arab Documentary Film Program, in partnership with the Sundance Documentary Institute, to address current topics and respond to specific areas in need of funding.

In this context, AFAC is launching an open call for proposals for its general grant in the literature, visual arts, and performing arts categories. All individuals and organizations working in the cultural and artistic spheres whose projects target the Arab region are invited to submit their project proposals. The following types of projects are eligible for this open call for proposals: performing arts (development and production of theatrical, dance, and other forms of performance arts), visual arts (production and organization of art exhibitions, installations, and other forms of visual arts), and literature (research, writing, and publishing of literary works, including novels, short stories, poetry, translations, and biographies, in print and online).

Applications for projects must be submitted online by May 13. For information regarding this call for proposals, visit the AFAC website.
