Ahram Online, Thursday 16 Aug 2012
Cultural Resource has begun accepting submissions for its 'Mawaeed' programme, which aims to support cultural and artistic exchanges throughout the Arab world


Al-Mawred Al-Thaqafi (Cultural Resource) is now accepting applications for its 'Mawaeed' programme, which aims to promote cultural and artistic exchanges between independent theatres, exhibitions, institutions and other cultural organisations throughout the Arab world.

The grant will provide partial funding for travel expenses for artists, writers and directors that produce and submit their artwork or participate in cultural events and artistic activities throughout the Arab region.

The programme represents an important opportunity for Arab artists and for the circulation and dissemination of their creative work. It will also provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience with fellow Arab artists.

Applications for the 'Mawaeed' programme will be accepted until the end of the year, and will be evaluated by experts from the regional arts community. The upcoming evaluation date is 20 September.
