Birth of The APF (Artists Protection Fund), a three-year pilot programme for artists at risk

Previous Opportunity

The Institute for International Education has announced the birth of a three-year pilot programme for artists at risk, funded by the Mellon Foundation. The APF (Artists Protection Fund) will make life-saving fellowship grants to threatened artists from any field of artistic endeavour, and place them at host universities and arts centres in safe countries where they can continue their work. Universities, arts centres, and arts organisations around the world are welcome to join. Hosts will be requested to match fellowship support through contributions that may include housing, studio space, art supplies, and other support from their networks

The Institute welcomes inquiries from threatened artists directly or from individuals or institutions nominating threatened artists for support. APF is for artists who are facing or have recently fled from immediate, severe, and targeted threats to their lives and/or careers in their home countries or countries of residence. Information on how to apply will be available in the autumn of 2015.

Please direct all interest and inquiries to
