Sharjah Art Foundation invites artists, writers, collectives and independent publishing houses working with art publications and printed matter to apply for the first cycle of the FOCAL POINT Publishing Grant. Encompassing both emerging and established individuals and publishing initiatives, the award will provide full or partial (e.g. initiating, completing or launching) support for the individual book and print projects and/or independent set-ups that demonstrate a long-term plan for publishing books and other printed matter. FOCAL POINT is Sharjah Art Foundation’s annual art book fair organized to present a wide range of printed matter.

Participation Criteria:

The three-day event features regional and international artists and publishers, participating either by invitation or through an open call, who present their content individually or within curated sections. A public programme of talks, screenings, book launches, open studios, and themed educational workshops runs alongside the book fair.

Selection Criteria:

Applicants should submit a grant application and an overview of the project for which they seek to support. Projects will be assessed on the conceptual framework and originality. The artistic approach, format, and content are open.

The Grant Amount

A total of $30,000 will be awarded to two or more grantees.
