2021 Support Fund: Weaving Ties © Goethe-Institut Libanon

Call for Applications

In response to the increasing isolation faced by cultural practitioners residing in Lebanon today, the Goethe-Institut Libanon is launching its 2021 Support Fund for artists, collectives and independent cultural professionals to promote international networks and dialogues and support individuals or groups of individuals in the realization of jointly planned projects.

The 2021 Support Fund offers one-time financial support for the implementation of a new or ongoing project and seeks to facilitate international contacts, encounters and experiences for people living in Lebanon with the overall aim of fostering collaborative work processes and artistic research in local as well as transnational contexts.

The focus of the fund is on collaborative projects and structures with a progressive approach as a working method between individuals and/or collectives based in Lebanon and other individuals and/or collectives based outside Lebanon.

The grant is intended to provide flexible financial support to individuals/collectives who do not have sufficient funds of their own to realize their projects or part of their projects and/or do not have enough time to adequately focus on their ongoing work or new projects they wish to work on, which can be used for the realization of a specific project or to cover costs incurred in the realization of such a project (e.g. rent of a workspace, studio for rehearsals, etc.)

a. Who either wish to work individually on a project
