Visual Arts Grants for Arab Individuals

The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture – AFAC has announced a call for applications for its first cycle of grants programs in the category of "Visual Arts".

The Visual Arts grant supports painting, sculpting, photography, installations, audio-video arts, publications (artist book or other publications) and multi-media works of a contemporary and innovative nature.

The grant can support exhibitions, visual arts book publications as well as art production.

The program provides annual grants ranging from a few thousand U.S. dollars up to a maximum of fifty thousand U.S. dollars.

When the grant from AFAC exceeds ten thousand dollars yet only covers a portion of the project’s overall budget, the grantee is obliged to raise 70% of the remaining budget in order to be awarded the grant.

In the event that the grantee is unable to procure 70% of the remaining project budget within 90 days of receiving the grant, the latter will be canceled.

AFAC does not offer mobility grants. Travel costs can be covered by the AFAC grant only when they are part of the implementation of a project.

Place and Duration

  • AFAC will not provide support retroactively, i.e. to projects already completed. For projects that have already started, AFAC will cover the expenses that will occur only after the signature of the contract if the project is selected.
  • Projects may be implemented anywhere as long as they are created by Arab artists or – as in the case of non-Arab institutions - relevant to the Arab region. The project’s time frame should not exceed 24 months.

    Eligibility Criteria

  • AFAC is open to receive project applications from all Arab individuals working in arts and culture. Project applications are accepted irrespective of age, years of experience, country of residence, ethnicity, gender or religion.
  • AFAC also accepts proposals from local, regional and international institutions whose projects are related to Arab culture.

    These include artistic, cultural, social and educational institutions, galleries, centers and organizations, governmental and non-governmental, that are engaging with contemporary Arab arts and culture.

  • AFAC will not consider applications submitted by: Members of the Board of Trustees, their business partners or family members.
  • AFAC staff members, their business partners or family members.
  • Members of the current year’s readers and jurors’ committees.
  • Recipients of two consecutive grants unless two years had passed since the last grant (e.g. If a grantee had received two grants in 2016 and 2017, s/he can apply again in 2020).
  • Applicants with a current open grant.
  • Each applicant (individual or institution) is entitled to only one application in the same category.
  • If an applicant has an application that is in process, s/he cannot submit another application in any category until the result of the current application process is announced.

    How to Apply

    Applications are only accepted through the online application form. Applications submitted via regular mail or e-mail will not be accepted.

    Apply by 15th April.
