The Cultural Foundation > Open Call for Performing Arts Production Programme (United Arab Emirates)


The Cultural Foundation in Abu Dhabi has opened applications for its Performing Arts Production programme. Proposed projects should be original concepts and, in light of the pandemic, can experiment with new forms of performance outside the closed space format. Applicants should be based in the United Arab Emirates or the Arab region, or be from the diaspora.

The Cultural Foundation offers:

  • Financial support for production costs.

  • Six days (six hours maximum per day) use of rehearsal space with logistics and technical facilities (only for UAE-based artists).

  • A presentation as part of the Cultural Foundation performing arts programme (performance fees and marketing will be covered by Cultural Foundation).

Supported creations will need to be delivered by autumn 2021.

Deadline: 14 February 2021
