Mophradat is partnering with various international organizations to set up residency opportunities for artists, musicians, and writers from the Arab world. Residencies provide an occasion for practitioners to immerse themselves in a different context and take time out from their regular routine to focus exclusively on their practice. It is also a chance to visit international exhibitions and institutions, and meet a new art community and professional peers. Applicants must be arts practitioners from or living in the Arab world who are primarily engaged with artistic concerns and aim toward high artistic merit.
Our current partners for residencies are CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, WIELS | Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, Le Confort Moderne in Poitiers, and Capacete in Rio de Janeiro. We are also organizing bespoke six-week creative writing residencies in Belgium to provide an opportunity to focus on a specific writing project.
Candidates are chosen through open calls, and current calls can be found on the “Apply” page.
