The Mawa3eed program, launched in 2006, to provide travel support of up to $5000 USD to Arab artists who are traveling within the region to present their work or to take part in cultural and artistic activities at different cultural spaces in the Arab region.
As a program designed to support cultural and artistic exchange between artists and independent theaters, galleries, institutes, and other cultural organizations, Mawa3eed is an important opportunity for Arab artists to circulate their creative works through different cultural spaces within the Arab region, and to exchange knowledge and expertise with other artists. It also gives the public the opportunity to appreciate new artistic forms from different countries in the region, enabling diverse cultural spaces to grow their audiences and circulate ideas and forms of expression.
In the five years since the program’s inception this fund has supported 120 individual artists and companies to attend festivals, present concerts and exhibitions, or take part in panels and workshops. Applications are accepted year round and are evaluated four times a year by expert juries drawn from the members of the Artistic Board.
