The Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF) is pleased to launch the regional leg of its mobility programme, which will support African music festivals wanting to programme artists from any of the following seven countries: Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria (Northern), Chad, Mali and Niger.

This regional mobility call is part of the broader Music In Africa Connects (MIAConnects) Artist Mobility Programme, which in 2017 supported more than 100 artists from countries affected by conflict to tour locally.

The value of the Regional Mobility Programme is that music festivals are now benefiting from the programme together with the artists, a development that will strengthen the live music scene on the continent.

MIAConnects is made possible with support from the Siemens Stiftung and the German Federal Foreign Office.

Please note that this call is for festivals that take place on the African continent only. The deadline for applications is 22 March 2018 (midnight CAT).
