The general fund supports mobility which
contributes to local cultural development and the emancipation of populations. This can be for example, developing partnerships and
cooperation abroad to strengthen local economies back home (through co-
productions or sustainable exchange
programmes) or developing independent inter-regional or inter-national production
networks. It can also be through capacity building (training and residencies), sharing knowledge learnt abroad, developing one’s network of contacts through physical presence in events.
To facilitate mobility, cultural and artistic development in the Euro-Arab-Middle East
Fanak Fund aims for equality, transparency and sustainability and promotes the respect of
human rights and cultural rights in particular.
Who is it for?
