Arts for Afghanistan

Arts for Afghanistan fundraises and facilitates safe transit and resettlement for Afghan artists and cultural workers whose lives are impacted by the recent regime change, due to the nature of their bold, independent, and transformative work. Our efforts include securing arts and cultural fellowships, residencies, university enrollments, and faculty positions as well as filings for asylum, covering visa applications/fees and travel expenses. To those who are unable to leave Afghanistan, we offer financial sustenance, professional mentorships, and networking opportunities, so that they may also continue their artistic practices.

The dreamers and keepers of Afghanistan’s history must survive for a new vision of the future to emerge.
