Share this opportunity with your friends

Culture Resource offes grants every year for Arab artists as part of their program "Wijhat"; a program designed to serve artists and cultural actors in the Arab region by offering grants of up to 8,000 US Dollars to support travel both within and outside the Arab region, thereby enabling the grantees to present their works to new audiences and to engage in new and diverse inter- and intra-Arab cultural exchange experiences.

Funding

The 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.

Program Goals

Wijhat aims to contribute to raising awareness of arts and culture from the Arab region, both regionally and internationally, by supporting the regional or international travels of artists and cultural actors from the region. The program offers artists the opportunity to take part in cultural events and activities and present their work to diverse audiences in wider regional and/or international contexts, to exchange knowledge and expertise with peers, and/or to build their professional capacities.

Culture Resource aspires to make this support available to artists and cultural actors from all parts of the Arab region, while ensuring geographic and gender diversity as much as possible.
