Call For Application | Music In Africa | Artist Mobility Programme

The Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF) is pleased to invite musicians to apply for touring support as part of its recently launched Music In Africa Connects – Artist Mobility Programme. The mobility programme is made possible with support from the Siemens Foundation and the German Federal Foreign Office.

The Music In Africa Connects – Artist Mobility Programme supports musicians  
in African countries affected by conflict.

The programme supports musicians in seven African countries affected by conflict, to undertake live music performances (tours) and collaborations, provided that such activities do not compromise the safety of the participants. Participating countries are Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria (Northern), Chad, Mali and Niger.

The mobility programme offers support for three types of tours:
  • National (where musicians tour locally in their own countries).
  • Regionally (across Africa).
  • Internationally (Germany).
This call is for NATIONAL TOURS only.
The deadline for applications is 31 August 2017 (midnight CAT).
