  •  Music

The programme offers fifteen grants every year. Beneficiaries receive grants of $10,000 USD for the categories of cinema, animation, theatre, dance and performing arts projects, and $6,000 USD for projects in the other categories. Laboratory of Arts supports freedoms of artistic and literary expression and welcomes creativity and innovation, particularly with regards to making supported works accessible to audiences in the Arab region and Europe.

The programme is open to artists and artistic initiatives based in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Turkey and across Europe for artists who are under 40 years of age.
