AFAC aims to include the widest scope of Arab participation in its granting programs. Based on database analysis, we seek out locations in the Arab world from which there has been the least amount of applications received and undertake fieldtrips to engage more directly with artists and cultural practitioners in their home contexts. Thus AFAC undertook a weeklong fieldtrip to Libya. Eager to meet the artists and discover the new cultural expressions emerging in light of the recent political change the country has witnessed, the field trip included visits to the main cities of Tripoli and Benghazi as well as important suburbs, revealing an extraordinary landscape of creative potential.
