Date 2014-04-28 File mobility_ funding_opportunities_13 Arab_countries_OTM.pdf

Korea Arts Management Service, On the Move and the Arab Education Forum launch the online Guide to funding opportunities for the international mobility of artists and culture professionals - Focus on 13 Arab countries: Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Qatar, Oman, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

This guide is supported by KAMS - Korea Arts Management Service, and was carried out in cooperation with the Jordanian Hashemite Fund For Human Development and the Queed Zein Al- Sharaf Institute for Development. The main objective of this Mobility Funding Guide is to provide an overview of the funding that support international mobility of artists and cultural operators between the thirteen countries mentioned above. Subsequently it aims to provide inputs for funders and policy makers on how to fill the existing gaps in funding for international cultural exchange. In this guide you can find funding opportunities related to most artistic and cultural disciplines, classified by types of funding organisations. The list includes only regular funding opportunities accessible online that cover travel costs - partially or completely. The guide mostly lists regional and international sources of funding - be they public or private - and includes a few national funding organisations.

As this research focuses on 13 Arab countries, nationals from other countries in the region or interested in the Arab / MENA region may find the resources in this guide relevant as well.
