With your support, SAF strives to award 500$ (or whatever we can collect monthly) to one Sudanese artist. The award is not to fund a project. But to invest in the artist to keep working.

About SAF

At SAF, we wholeheartedly believe in the power of art and artists to chronicle the history of the Sudanese people's unwavering fight for democracy. Despite the challenges posed by war, we refuse to let adversity dampen our spirits. Instead, we channel our collective energy into using art as a powerful tool for resilience, resistance, and transformation. Through art, we raise our voices, convey our stories, and advocate for positive change. To sustain this momentum and meet the high demand for support, SAF acknowledges the pressing need for resources. In light of this, we have partnered with the Resource Organization and a coalition of other organizations. Together, we aim to provide assistance to Sudanese artists and creators residing in Sudan who have been directly impacted by the devastating war on April 15, 2023. We invite artists to apply for the "Stand with Sudanese Artists" grant through the website mawred.org. This grant serves as a means to empower and uplift the artistic community, enabling them to overcome the challenges they face and continue their creative pursuits. To further support our mission and make a lasting impact, we kindly ask for your generous donations. As a tax-exempt organization in the United States, your contributions go directly towards providing essential resources and opportunities for Sudanese artists. Your support not only fuels their artistic growth but also helps build a brighter future for Sudan. To make a donation click on the donate tab on the website. Your generosity will make a meaningful difference in the lives of Sudanese artists and contribute to the transformative power of art.

For Artists

The time to support Sudan’s artists and change Sudan's art infrastructure is now. Many artists in Sudan are unable to pursue their work as they need to focus on providing for themselves and their families in the face of tough economic conditions in the country. With little to no financial support, it is often not an option to focus on artistic expression, even when it is most needed. SAF strives to support Sudanese artists, $500 at a time.
