The main objective of SOFACO is to strengthen the resilience capacity of artists and cultural organizations through support for the creation and reconstruction of the artistic sector’s social fabric in Africa in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.
In April 2021, the ACF launched the SOFACO call for proposals batch no.3: Special Covid-19/Individual Artists and Cultural Organizations.
At its closing in May 2021, 55 beneficiaries from 22 African countries and from all artistic disciplines were selected to each benefit from a grant of 3,000 euros (per artist) and 5,000 euros (per cultural organization).
There are 30 individual artists and 25 cultural organizations, among the grantees.
