Al-Mawred (culture resource) organization has recently launched a new initiative entitled “Ibara”. The program aims at supporting the structural development of 25 independent cultural institutions from Tunisia and Egypt in particular, and from the Arab countries on the verge of democratic change. Through this support, Al-Mawred hopes to enable these institutions to play their role in the battle towards democratization.
“Ibara” offers grants ranging between 25000 and 50000 U.S dollars for a two years period, funding the structural and administrative development of the institutions, in addition to cultural and financial management training.
applications should be submitted before September 5, 2011.
