TAMTEEN support programme


In the context of international mobility and exchange of artists and cultural operators, the Roberto Cimetta Fund is running a funding line TAMTEEN - to support the strengthening and sustainability of organisations and artists collectives from the Arab world (including Turkey).


This funding line aims at strengthening cultural and artistic organisations and/or artists collectives operating in the Arab and Middle Eastern geographical zone  including Turkey) and developing local projects (venues, networks, platforms).We hope through this fund to create a leverage effect that could contribute modestly to rebalancing forces between Arab- Middle Eastern and European components in the exchange, as well as strengthening and sustaining cultural exchange between Arab regions. 


The grants provided will not exceed 3000€ and can be considered as co-funding depending on the projects selected.


This fund is open for organisations, artists collectives and independents cultural managers based in the Arab- Middle Eastern world and who have been operating for at least two years. The aim of this Fund is to stabilise projects in their local environment, allowing them to establish recognition and develop their networking capacities.


The experts and Board members of the Roberto Cimetta Fund will monitor the selected projects during their implementation.


Five projects will be selected. The funds provided must be used within two years, unless agreed otherwise.


The Roberto Cimetta Fund and its partners hope that this fund can serve to strengthen projects that emerge following the benefits of a travel grant and at the same time support the financial autonomy of local independent cultural initiatives.


The next call for applications is launched from  1st August 2018 till 30th September 2018. The evaluation and selection processes will take place during the months of October and November 2018. The results will be announced on 1st December 2018.

Applications can be made in Arabic, English and French.
