  • Title: AFAC :: OVERVIEW
    Descriptive info: About us.. /.. AFAC's Circle of Friends.. Vision Objectives.. 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.. Our objectives vis-à-vis creative communities are:.. - To increase and enhance contemporary art and culture production and research;.. - To support capacity-building and training in the cultural sector;.. - To perpetuate cultural exchange and collaboration across the region and globally;.. - To deliver a sustainable source of funding for outstanding and meaningful cultural work;.. - To identify and develop distribution channels for Arab cultural production in the region and beyond.. Our objectives vis-à-vis audiences are:.. - To cultivate appreciation and engagement with contemporary art and culture among the wider Arab publics;.. - To encourage patronage and philanthropy towards arts and culture activities with individuals, corporations and foundations;.. Our objectives vis-à-vis the public sector:.. - To advocate  ...   initiative that funds individuals and organizations in the fields of cinema, performing arts, literature, music and visual arts while facilitating cultural exchange, research and cooperation across the Arab world and globally.. The measurable impact of AFAC s work ranges from Arab filmmakers screening their films at international film festivals; to translations of foreign contemporary literature into Arabic, distributed for free on the Internet; to archives that collect, document and preserve images of daily life during better times, in conflict-torn countries like Lebanon and Iraq; to workshops that teach children to weave stories through puppetry and animation; to sharing contemporary narratives from the region with the global public.. Our grantees work has been reviewed in the local and international press; they have been invited to participate in high-profile festivals, artist exchanges and residencies, and have, in turn, inspired hundreds of others to pursue artistic endeavors through workshops and trainings.. Despite these successes and a measure of international recognition, AFAC awardees have overwhelmingly continued to work within the region and focus their cultural production on a local context..

    Descriptive info: Dr.. Ghassan Salame s speech at AFAC s 2011 end of year event.. Our keen guardianship of AFAC s independence and professionalism marks us now, 7 years on, as a successful example of cultural philanthropy for the Arab region.. AFAC is setting a strong example of transparent grant-making; every penny is accounted for and there are no cutting corners or under-the-table agreements when it comes to influencing grant distribution.. The process is streamlined and AFAC relies on independent juror committees for its grantee selections.. Moreover, the smooth process of grant-making has allowed AFAC to widen its means of support to include opportunities for professional training and industry-networking to benefit artists together with financial sustenance.. If creativity is to flourish, both funds and exposure are needed, and there is no lack of either for the Arab region.. Nevertheless, the independent and simultaneously regional scope of AFAC s work is both its greatest strength and its weakness since it  ...   events or tall buildings.. Furthermore, AFAC gives full respect and copyright ownership of the products created with its grants to the artists themselves; it is part of our emphasis on empowering creativity and supporting an independent cultural sector.. While AFAC is playing a unique and much-needed role in the Arab region as a professional grant-maker, the fact remains that the majority of AFAC s funding comes from Non-Arabs.. This is unacceptable and needs to change.. Over the past few years, the ratio of Arab funding has gradually increased, but it is now more urgent to ramp up these efforts.. As the region seeks to redefine its future and its values, we must remember and strategize to keep a primacy of place for the field of arts and culture.. Only in creative expression can there be hope for the region to renew itself as a resilient and tolerant society, with all its multi-faceted diversities.. Ghassan Salamé, January 2014..

    Descriptive info: Meshy Online - Performance by Khouloud Nasser - 2008.. 2013 was a year of consolidation for AFAC; our calls for proposal are now the most preferred access point to funding by independent artists across the Arab region.. The steadiness of our grant making programs has allowed us to focus our attention on long-term strategies for developing local philanthropy in the cultural sector.. Pioneering the cause of arts and culture as a worthy investment is no simple task.. Over the past year, we found ourselves talking about arts and culture with directors of leading petrochemical companies, construction companies, pharmaceutical companies, etc.. , inviting them to channel their CSR support towards our artists - a juxtaposition that would have been far-fetched  ...   and culture with 200 corporations in the region and are developing tools that aim to better connect donors with recipients.. What are the different motivations that inspire people to support the arts? From personal development to financial investment, education to international diplomacy, there are many compelling reasons, but it is important that discussions between fund-seekers and fund-providers remain transparent and properly framed from the onset.. Finally, in spite of the images of gloom and grim realities broadcast to the world from this region in 2013, our artists will continue unabated to inspire their communities and instill hope where it is needed most.. They continue to project with confidence and resourcefulness, their vision of a better world.. Oussama Rifahi, January 2014..
