Art Moves Africa (AMA) is an international not-for-profit organisation that aims to facilitate cultural and artistic exchanges within the African continent. AMA offers travel funds to artists, arts professionals and cultural operators living and working in Africa to travel within the African continent in order to engage in the exchange of information, the enhancement of skills, the development of informal networks, and the pursuit of cooperation.


AMA regrets that it is not currently in a position to issue mobility grants due to global funding cuts for culture. The grant programme will be resumed as soon as long term funding mechanisms are in place again. 

AMA is also going through a restructuring exercise where its long term strategies in the current global reality will be redefined. 

Culture and artistic mobility are important vectors for development. Mobility encourages the exchange of information and experiences, capacity building, network development and South-South cooperation. Therefore AMA remains committed to continue to support mobility of African artists and cultural professionals living and working within the continent.

In order to support AMA's fundraising strategy, the organisation calls for support letters explaining the relevance of AMA's mission and activities for the cultural sector within the continent and insisting on the imortance of survival/further existence of the organisation.
