To BEirut
Grants for practitioners in the performing arts

"Stay here, don’t go, breathe, stay present…”

Last words from "In My Heart’s Eye: The Love Project" by Zoukak Theatre Company - Feb 2020.


Zoukak Cultural Association launches "To BEirut”, a grant for practitioners in the performing arts, funded by Sundance Institute. This initiative is a modest contribution, aiming to support the existence and sustainability of the performing arts sector in Lebanon, through direct monetary support to artists and practitioners who were affected on the personal and professional level by the events and the crises of the past year in addition to the devastating 4th of August Beirut port explosion.
The grants distributed through this initiative aim to give some agency to artists and workers in the performing arts field, living in Beirut and facing great difficulties in the midst of destruction, economic and political collapse, a global pandemic and an uncertain future.
Deadline for application:  Friday 25 September 2020.
Eligible applicants:
The call for applications is open to all practitioners (artists, technicians, designers, producers, workers at the managerial level etc.) working in the following fields: Theatre, Performance Art, Dance, Circus Arts, and Multidisciplinary Arts.
Grant value:
The grants will vary between 1000 USD and 3000 USD depending on the applicant’s needs and eligibility.
How to Apply:
Please fill in this google form in order to submit your application.
Applications will be assessed by a committee, and the selected applicants will be notified individually during the first week of October.
