call for proposals

FEEL FREE – Call for Proposals

Nafasi Art Space with The Embassy of Switzerland in Tanzania is launching an open call for proposals for arts and culture projects.

Selected applicants will receive funding, mentorship and support to realise their initiatives. The theme of the call, “FEEL FREE”, invites artists and arts organisations, collectives, and groups, to explore concept development and audience engagement in thoughtful, ambitious ways, in any artistic or cultural discipline, including visual arts, performing arts, theatre, literature, digital art and new media, and more.

We see this call as a chance for artists and arts organisations to be bold, experimental, and ambitious while they explore the process and presentation of artistic production. This call is also a chance to gain confidence and skills in grant and project management, working with Nafasi Art Space to build their own professionalism and to gain competency and ability in arts production.

Organisations, institutions, networks and individuals working in the creative and culture sectors are eligible. This includes artists, cultural actors, higher education institutions, local authorities, NGOs and social enterprises.
