Artists' Residency

UNESCO - Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Program. The program was established in 1994 to open new career prospects to young artists and give them the opportunity to continue their training in specialized institutions. The Khalid Shoman Foundation Darat al Funun joined the program in 1999 and has since hosted a number of artists in this program.
