Al Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art invites artists, creatives, curators, researchers and scholars to patriciate in its residency program in the Old City of Jerusalem. Residents will get the opportunity to develop a new work or work on an existing project, while delving into the culture and socio-political environment of Jerusalem. Through this residency program, Al Ma’mal aims to promote Jerusalem’s cultural and artistic scene, and build bridges for learning and understanding between the city and the world. Therefore, even though the residency is non-thematic, the artists-in-residence are encouraged to work directly with the community and are invited to take part in Al Ma’mal’s public program.

Our residents are hosted in our historic building in the Old City of Jerusalem, and they will be offered a per diem, and a contribution towards travel and production costs. They will also get the opportunity to collaborate with Al Ma’mal on exhibitions, publications, lectures & workshops.

The resident is expected to dedicate the allocated residency period to work on the proposed project, to meet on a weekly basis with Al Ma’mal team for follow up and feedback, and to cooperate with Al Ma’mal in hosting 1-2 public events related to the residency.

In order to apply, a resume, artist statement, project proposal and portfolio of work should be sent to: residency [​at​] almamalfoundation.org
