Sharjah Art Foundation has opened entries for the first cycle of the Focal Point Publishing Grant. The grant will award a total of $30,000 to two or more grantees for individual book and print projects or independent set-ups with a long-term publication plan. Applicants may be artists, writers, collectives and independent publishing houses. The application deadline is 8 June 2019.
Projects supported by the publishing grant will be presented at Focal Point Sharjah Art Foundation’s annual art book fair, which takes place this year from 14 to 16 November.
