The Mawa3eed program, launched in 2006, is a fund for partially financing travel expenses of up to $5000 USD for Arab artists to present artistic work or to take part in cultural and artistic events and activities at multiple, diverse cultural spaces in the region.
Designed to support cultural and artistic exchange between artists and independent theaters, galleries, institutes, and other cultural organizations, Mawa3eed is an important opportunity for Arab artists to circulate their creative works through different cultural spaces within the Arab region, and to exchange knowledge and expertise with other artists. It also gives the public the opportunity to appreciate new artistic forms from different countries in the region, enabling diverse cultural spaces to grow their audiences and circulate ideas and forms of expression.
