Calls for Grants (2014). The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) was established in 2007 by local cultural lobbyists as an independent initiative that funds individuals and organizations in the fields of cinema, performing arts, literature, music and visual arts while facilitating cultural exchange, research and cooperation across the Arab world and globally.
AFAC envisions a thriving Arab art and cultural scene, one that is confident in its expression, open to dialogue, accessible to all and sustained locally by committed patrons. Two fundamental principles guide AFAC’s mode of work: transparency in the grant giving process and independence through a diversity of funding sources.

– 1st February 2014 for Visual Arts and Performing Arts (deadline: 1 May 2014)
– 1st May 2014 for Cinema
– 1st June 2014 for Music and RTR (Research, Training and Regional events)
