Sharjah Art Foundation offers production grants to artists working in a range of media including sculpture, installation, time based media, artist’s books and performance.

Up to a total of $200,000 is available in the application cycle 2012. The success of a proposal will be determined by merit rather than budget. To this end, projects with budgets that range from modest to ambitious scales will be considered.

The Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) Production Programme broadens the possibilities for the production of art in the MENASA region through a commitment to support innovation and excellence in artistic practice by encouraging risk and experimentation. This commitment places artists at the core of the Foundation’s mission by offering grants and professional support for the realisation of projects selected from an open call for proposals.

The submission deadline is 24 February 2012. All applications will be reviewed by a distinguished jury and selections will be announced in March during the Foundation’s annual March Meeting (March 17–19, 2012)—a three-day symposium of artists, art professionals, and institutions from around the world

The selected projects will be developed and produced by the artist and the Sharjah Art Foundation, with presentation of the completed project as agreed between the artist(s) and SAF.
