Wijhat International mobilty fund for artists and cultural actors, apply until 15 September

Our TandemShaml partner Culture Resource has announced the launch of Wijhat (Destinations), a programme that aims to support the travel of artists and cultural actors from the Arab Region to participate in events within the region and internationally, allowing them to present their works to diverse audiences in global, regional and local contexts, to exchange knowledge and expertise with peers, to build their professional capacities, or to produce and develop their artistic works.

Grants of up to 8000 USD are awarded to grantees who are selected by an independent jury of 3 cultural actors or artists with recognized expertise in the Arab and international cultural scenes from diverse disciplines and backgrounds.

Applications are accepted from individuals and groups from all Arab countries until 15 September 2018. The applicants do not necessarily have to reside in an Arab country, however the country of departure or arrival must be an Arab country. Results will be announced on 31 October 2018.
