Responding to the challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the arts and creative sector, FAS introduces the first edition of the Program for the Support of Angolan Creation PACA-FAS (Programa de Apoio à Criação Angolana). An art program intended for artists whose practices and research have been affected by the pandemic. The micro-fees were intented to maintain any ongoing and upcoming research and projects over the following months. The PACA support is directed at artists residing and working in Angola, have Angolan nationality, or are descendants of Angolans (Diaspora) living abroad.

The jury formed by Elvira Dyangani Ose, Director at The Showroom, London, and FAS members: Sofia Costa Freire (Executive Advisor to the Board at FAS) and Bruno Leitão (Head Curator at FAS) evaluated more than fifty candidacies.


FAS is very pleased to announce the list of recipients:
Aline Frazão / Ana Silva / Domingos Menezes / LabCC [Laboratório de Crítica e Curadoria] / Hélio Bruno Buite / Ingrid Fortez / Lubanzadyo Mpemba Bula / Matumbeats / Sofia Yala Rodrigues / Yolana de Lemos

About FAS
For Arts Sake is a collection that expands its mission to focus and foster the knowledge of African and African Diaspora artists.

FAS primary purpose is to support and expand the careers of African artists and its diaspora, entangling a dialogue between new perspectives and experienced artists from various countries of the continent.

FAS wishes to enhance the art systems locally by creating conditions to propel voices from these nations, fostering talents through curating. We aspire to set an empowering agenda for Art in such lively scenes such as Angola, Congo or Mozambique. At FAS, we believe that collecting is more than a series of acquisitions; we support projects, curators, and artists.

FAS is associated with recent publications and editions expanding the canon of western culture and strengthening the awareness of African Visual Arts.
