‘Visual Arts: A Flourishing Field’ Project Grants for Palestinian Non-profit Organisations

 

Deadline: 2 May 2019

The ‘Visual Arts: A Flourishing Field’ (VAFF) Project has announced the second open call for applications. With funding from Sweden, the VAFF project is implemented by the A. M. Qattan Foundation’s Culture and Arts Programme.

 

Through this second round of project funding, VAFF aims to build on the achievements and experiences accumulated from the implementation of the first round. VAFF also aspires to further its work towards the realisation of a more sustainable and vibrant visual arts field in Palestine. The VAFF support for the sustainability of the visual arts field is a wholistic process that includes the enhancement of the structures of visual arts organisations and the capacities of their staff, the diversification of financial resources, the advancement of the effectiveness of art programmes and the upgrading of logistics capacities. The aim is that this will, in turn, lead to a higher efficiency in working with a wider base of artists, art collectives and researchers, to produce new educational, art and research based projects. It will also contribute to the engagement of new groups and audiences with the new productions, and enhance the position and role of the organisations in the cultural scene and in Palestinian society.

The VAFF Project’s Outcomes

VAFF aims to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Enhancing financial and/or administrative and/or technical and core staff capacities, as well as the acquiring of needed equipment and other resources related to the implementation of visual arts programmes.
  • Developing learning and research programmes and opportunities in the field of the visual arts, and making these available to artists, academics, art students and professionals, as well as reinforcing elements that will elevate the enthusiasm and engagement of different community groups in the visual arts field.
  • Developing the capacities of art organisations in extending support to artists and art professionals for the engagement with and/or the production of new art works, and in building a wider audience base.

By accomplishing the above outcomes, the foundation hopes to contribute in the long-term to the development of a Palestinian society that embraces freedom of expression and produces knowledge, art and culture.

Funding Information

Grants will range between $100,000–$300,000 per organisation.

Implementation Period

The grant implementation period is eighteen months, tentatively starting in September 2019 and lasting until February 2021. Narrative and financial reports should also be submitted during this period.

Eligibility Criteria

The following are eligible to submit applications for VAFF Project Grants:

  • Non-profit organisations working fully or partially in the visual arts field, and which are registered in the West Bank (including Jerusalem) and/or Gaza Strip.
  • Art colleges, faculties and other academic institutions that offer educational and/or research programmes in the visual arts, and which are registered in the West Bank (including Jerusalem) and/or Gaza Strip.
  • Art colleges, faculties and other academic institutions that offer educational and/or research programmes in the visual arts, and which are registered in the West Bank (including Jerusalem) and/or Gaza Strip.
  • Partner organisations that received VAFF grants as part of the first round of funding are eligible to apply in this second round, with the knowledge that this does not necessarily qualify them to receive a second grant.

Note: Organisations receiving core funding from other projects funded by Sweden are still eligible to apply, but to avoid any potential “duplication of funding” such applications will go through an additional assessment in an early stage of the evaluation process.
