Resident Artists

By inviting artists to work at Darat al Funun over an extended period of time, the studios generate opportunities for creative and instructional encounters.
It permits the artists to explore new fields in the arts that require specialized equipment and creates a stimulating environment in which they can interact and exchange ideas.
