The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) envisions a thriving Arab art and cultural scene, one that is confident in its expression, open to dialogue, accessible to all and sustained locally by committed patrons. Two fundamental principles guide AFAC's mode of work: transparency in the grant giving process and independence through a diversity of funding sources.
RTR (Regional Events, Training and Research) is open for projects in all fields of cultural production and usually goes to support artistic and cultural research, training and workshops as well as regional events like festivals, competitions and cross-cultural collaborations.
