SPECIAL CALL COVID-19 – #1 / ARTISTS

Deadline for submission of proposals   :  30 June 2020

In this context of health crisis where no continent or country is spared, the creative sector is proving to be one of the most severely impacted sectors by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is with this in mind that the African Culture Fund (ACF) has decided to launch, from May 15, the SOFACO project, whose main objective is to strengthen the resilience of artists and cultural organizations through assistance for creation and reconstruction of the social fabric of the artistic sector in Africa facing the COVID-19 crisis.

SPECIAL CALL COVID-19 #1 / ARTISTS :  Support for creation and resilience to African artists facing the COVID-19 crisis

Batch N°1 : Special Covid-19 / Artist 

The African Culture Fund (ACF) is launching the present first batch of calls for projects exclusively for the benefit of artists, through the Solidarity Fund for Artists and Cultural Organizations in Africa (SOFACO), in order to support African artists on whom the COVID-19 crisis has had a negative effect. A second batch will be launched in June / July 2020 for the benefit of cultural organisations (Batch No. 2: Special Covid-19/Cultural Organizations).
