An initiative of the South Cultural Fonds (Switzerland) in partnership with Meta Arts (India), Heritage Space (Vietnam), Lugar a Dudas (Colombia) and Global Landscapes Forum (Indonesia, Germany, Kenya).


Incubator is an initiative calling for workshop proposals to equip artists with the hands-on knowledge required to successfully design, coordinate, and facilitate online workshops. Since September 2023, the grantees and partners of the INCUBATOR: CALL FOR WORKSHOPS PROPOSALS have worked tirelessly on the production and realisation of their workshop ideas. The Incubator saw six transdisciplinary artist-grantees and creatives from across the world, furthering their capacities in crafting, coordinating, and leading captivating virtual and in-person workshops on themes canvassing Food Futures, Migration and Mobility, Indigenous, Afro-Caribbean Cosmogonies, Gender & Equity and Climate Action.

With mentorship and collaborative guidance, the artist-grantees pushed boundaries, captivated diverse audiences, and left a lasting mark on their respective creative landscapes during the project from September 2023 to April 2024.

Star Hopper's role as Film Development Partner, involves mentoring and providing film-based training, enabling artists to explore archives and reimagine narratives, not just for personal artistic expression but to engage communities deeply. The aim is to empower artists to pass on these skills, enabling peers and community leaders to document and rewrite their own histories, taking agency and authorship of their narratives.

The grant is for artists with a creative practice for 3 years or more that are from and living in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Belize, Bolivia, Cambodia, Colombia, Cuba, Djibouti, DRC, Egypt, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Haiti, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Morocco, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Timor-Leste, Uganda, Vietnam.
