The Arab Fund forAFAC Art and Culture was found in 2007 through the initiative of Arab cultural activists. Further,  as an independent foundation to support individual artists, writers, researchers, intellectuals, as well as organizations from the Arab region working in the field of arts and culture. AFAC strives to build a flourishing cultural and artistic scene across the Arab region. Further,  that contributes to establishing open and vibrant societies.  Where young and seasoned voices engage with each other in the wake of the massive transformations being witnessed by the region.


  • The program provides annual grants ranging from a few thousand U.S. dollars. Also, up to a maximum of fifty thousand U.S. dollars.
  • When the grant from AFAC Art and culture exceeds ten thousand dollars yet only covers a portion of the project’s overall budget.  The grantee is to raise 70% of the remaining budget in order to get 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.
  • The AFAC grant covers project-related expenses (including artist fees). In the case of institutions, a small percentage of the grant can be for certain running costs. AFAC and the jury reserve the right to determine whether the proposed running costs items are relevant or not.
  • AFAC will not provide support retroactively, i.e. to projects already completed. For projects that have already started, AFAC will cover the expenses. Further,  that will occur only after the signature of the contract after the selection of application.
