This Cultural Mobility Funding Guide is a concrete output of the mapping of funding opportunities for the international cultural mobility focused on the Arab region in general and the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region in particular.

The main objective of this Cultural Mobility Funding Guide is to provide an overview of the funding that support international mobility of artists and cultural operators within and beyond the Arab region with a particular country on the MENA countries. Subsequently it aims to provide input for funders and policy makers on how to fill the exciting gaps in funding for international cultural exchange. 

This guide was updated in March-May 2017 by the Arab Education Forum in collaboration with On the Move, thanks to the support of the MedCulture programme. This present guide – compared with the 2014 edition - was enriched with a new table summarising the different funding schemes available for the Arab / MENA region.

The first edition of this guide was supported by Korea Arts Management Service, with the research support of the Arab Education Forum and the Jordanian Hashemite Fund For Human Development and the Queen Zein Al-Sharaf Institute for Development, and the overall coordination by On the Move.  The guide was first online on 22 April 2014 after a presentation at the second Istikshaf conference "Advocating mobility: right on Track".
