Questions & Answers
We’ve been asked what we think about the development of such a program that is aimed at supporting Arab immigrants in Europe, and we would like to take this opportunity to elaborate more.
The way we view this project is a response to a need. There is an obvious need for supporting start-up Arab artists around the world, since, culturally, they have not had the same exposure to, first, the importance of contemporary art, and second, the external belief in it.
Many young Arab artists have a lot of potential and creative ability, however, the context they are in does not support their development for a number of reasons. Since we are here in Europe and have the resources and the ability to provide resources, we aim to provide a platform for these artists to believe in themselves and their work.
