Art and Movement
Spring Grants 2022 - Production Stage
It is during political, social or economical upheaval that voices, thoughts and feelings of the people need to be heard the most. The series focuses on the creative wave of artistry that occurs in countries within the Arab region and African continent, or by the African and Arab diaspora around the world. Each episode will showcase an arts movement founded by artists who helped etch its own themes, style, and techniques.
