The Production Awards program seeks to assist young Arab creators of all disciplines under the age of 35. The program offers young artists grants of up to $10,000 to support creative projects in the fields of literature, music, theater and the visual arts, and of up to $15,000 in the fields of film and video. The aim is to promote the creation of innovative works and forms of artistic expression that, through their circulation in the theaters, concert halls, galleries and other cultural spaces in the Arab region, will benefit artists, audiences and society at large.
Since the initiation of the Production Awards program in 2004, Culture Resource has awarded 145 grants. The number of recipients has grown annually from 7 in 2004 to 20 in 2012, in tandem with the growing number of applications that Culture Resource receives every year.
