Open Call: Storytelling Projects

Our second call for proposals focuses on supporting storytelling projects that capture the rich diversity of experiences and narratives of Afghan artists. We want to encourage cultural practitioners to explore the many ways in which Afghan life can be portrayed in times of dramatic upheaval and challenges. This can include forms such as poetry, literature, and translation, as well as plays, films, photographic essays, or documentary formats.
