The Arab region is witnessing the rise of institutions dedicated to funding, developing, and promoting the work of established and emerging independent artists from the Middle East and North Africa. Whether they operate on a regional level, or have a special focus as a response to an emergency in the field, these institutions are largely contributing to reshaping the landscape of contemporary Arab arts. For this reason, they have become essential partners for whoever wants to collaborate with Arab artists in the world today.
Pitching institutions: Tamasi Collective, represented by Amany Abou Zeid (Executive Manager); Palestinian Performing Arts Network (PPAN), represented by Iman Hammouri (Chair Person); Ettijahat-Independent Culture, represented by Abdullah Al-Kafri (Executive Director); Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) & the Arab Arts Focus, represented by Ahmed El Attar (Artistic Director).
