The Arab Fund For Arts and Culture (AFAC)

Amidst major societal transformations, most visual documentation in the Arab region is funneled through mass media outlets, with little opportunity for local documentary photographers to produce creative long-form stories. The Arab Documentary Photography Program, launched in 2014 by The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, the Prince Claus Fund, and Magnum Foundation, is a initiative that stimulates the production of compelling work by Arab photographers working across a range of experimental styles of storytelling.

The Arab Fund For Arts and Culture (AFAC) is an independent initiative that funds individuals and organizations in the arts to facilitate cultural exchange and cooperation across the Arab world and globally. 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.

These stories reveal the struggle of the internal landscape for those who have lost their native ones, the constant uncertainty of exile, the memories that we carry with us, and the hopes that keep us alive.
