  1. Performing Arts: AFAC offers funding for development and production of theatre, dance and other forms of performing arts.
  2. Visual Arts: AFAC offers funding for production and organization of art exhibitions, installations, and other forms of visual arts.

  4. Music: AFAC offers funding for music productions, performances, collaborations, album recordings and other musical projects.
  5. Research, Training and Regional Events (RTR): AFAC offers funding for studies and workshops in cultural and artistic fields, collaborative projects among artists and academics, multi-media libraries, archives and cultural documentation.
  6. Literature: Starting from 2014 for a period of three years, and as a result of an assessment of the last cycles of the literature general call and the feedback of our juror committees, this category is being replaced by a special program designed to develop the creative writing capacities of aspiring Arab authors. This special program is called the AFAC Novel Writing Program.

Place and Duration

  • Projects may be implemented anywhere as long as they are created by Arab artists or – as in the case of non-Arab institutions – relevant to the Arab region.
