Fanak Fund was launched as an independent civil society initiative, in June 2019 by a group of professionals working for the promotion of art and culture in the Arab-speaking world, Europe and the Middle East. The Fund facilitates the mobility and creativity of artists and cultural operators living and working in this geographical zone, to enhance cultural and artistic development at the local level and to favour multilateral connections and networking. We run three programmes : a mobility fund, a consolidation fund for artistic teams in the Arab world and Wider Middle East and a solidarity fund for organisations which host artists in exile near the conflict zones. We have funded over 1500 travel grants and 50 arts organisations and have a wide outreach to the artistic community in that region.
