Art Production Grants

Art Production Grants are intended to fund stand-alone productions by artists and art professionals residing in Turkey between the ages of 25 and 45 who will work in tandem with well-established mentors from the Turkish art scene throughout the implementation of their project.

Providing artists with access to crucial mentoring, cultural infrastructure as well as career opportunities, this programme aims to strengthen artistic networks which will result in heightened visibility and resilience for contemporary artists nationwide.

Art Production Grants are open for applications from the field of visual arts. An important focus will be on wide geographic coverage extending beyond the urban and cultural centres of Ankara, İstanbul, and İzmir.
