Madad Foundation, an independent institution which supports the dissemination of art in villages and underprivileged areas across Egypt, has decided to extend the application deadline for its cultural initiatives programme until 27 November.
The foundation grants up to LE5000 to projects aiming to produce of works of art -- including music, literature, video, theatre or visual arts -- in impoverished areas.
Madad aims to promote works of art from these villages and neighbourhoods and to organise arts events and festivals to be held in these locations. It also funds projects seeking to provide courses for residents in arts-related subjects.
The foundation was established by NGO Al-Mawred Al-Thaqafy.
The online application for the programme can be found here.
