Mophradat Grants for Artists from the Arab World


Mophradat creates opportunities for artists from the Arab world through an inventive approach to funding, commissioning, collaborating, and gathering. Its current open call is designed to support artists (individuals, collaborations, or collectives) to develop their practice.

Among other activities, the grants can be used to pursue threads of research, stage an event, make new work, publish, travel, take part in a residency or workshop, or present an exhibition or performance. The grants can cover part or all of the proposed activity or project. Approximately fifteen grants are awarded each calendar year, with an average value of USD $5000. Results are communicated within four weeks of the deadline to apply, and proposals must be achievable and completed within twelve months of the grant submission deadline.

Applicants must come from the field of contemporary arts (all disciplines are welcome). Activities or projects can take place anywhere in the world, but must be by artists or arts practitioners from or living in the Arab world, and/or engaged with the Arab world.

Deadline: 1 October 2020
