Each visiting artist is given the opportunity to propose and focus on a particular project whilst in residence from July to December 2020, which may be influenced or inspired by the reality of daily life in the city, the country and the region. Through this residency program, the foundation aims to promote Jerusalem’s cultural and artistic scene, create an impact on it, and build bridges for learning and understanding between the city and the world. Al Ma’mal seeks to root itself within the local community and encourage cultural and social development in the area.
