Wijhat International Mobility Fund 2020 for Artist and Cultural Actors in the Arab Region.

Arab artists and cultural actors face major challenges when it comes to traveling within the Arab region or abroad for professional purposes, including the scarce funding sources to help cover their travel expenses, the difficulty to obtain visas, and the few opportunities to learn about the organizations that might serve as potential partners in the processes of creative production in this region. Such problems hamper the prospects of artists in the Arab region for career development and the acquisition of wider audiences for their creative output. They also narrow the horizons for the artists’ collaboration and exchange of ideas and expertise with their peers in the region, limit the exposure of their works internationally, and restrict cultural and professional exchange opportunities with peers outside the Arab region.

What activities are covered by the program?

Wijhat International Mobility Fund program covers all activities that offer potential beneficiaries opportunities to develop their skills and capacities and to present their works to new audiences and potential partners who could have a positive impact on their future professional development. Such activities include:

  • Artistic and cultural festivals.
  • Artistic residencies.
  • Forums, conferences, and symposia.
  • Artistic and creative production workshops.
  • Training and capacity building workshops.

The Wijhat International Mobility Fund program offers 25 to 30 grants per year in three rounds. The support covers:

  • Ticket costs
  • Visa costs
  • Accommodation and partial support for living expenses
  • A recommendation letter from Culture Resource to the relevant embassy in order to support the visa application, if necessary.


  • Applicants must be from an Arab country, regardless of racial or ethnic affiliation or citizenship status.
  • An applicant does not necessarily have to reside in an Arab country, but the country of departure or arrival must be an Arab country
  • The grant is available for groups as well as individuals.
  • The program targets artists from all disciplines: visual arts, performance arts, literature, music, etc.
  • The program targets cultural actors whether working independently or as members of staff of cultural initiatives or organizations.
  • Applicants must be at least 18 years old; otherwise, applications must be submitted by an adult on their behalf, with written consent from their parents or guardians.
