The foundation has established three cultural centres in Gaza, London, and Ramallah, each with its unique identity tied to its geographical context. However, the primary shared objective of these centres is to provide spaces for knowledge sharing, promoting interaction, and fostering dialogue within the community. These centres host a wide range of cultural and artistic events, including visual arts exhibitions, book launches, musical and theatrical performances, and more. They are dynamic spaces that encourage experimentation, testing, and the exploration of various cultural and artistic ideas. These centres are known for being perpetually open, ready to accommodate a diverse mix of creatives and the public.

Our centres welcome children, families, artists, academics, cultural practitioners, and partners from different cultural fields to explore their spaces and benefit from them in ways that meet their artistic, cultural, and educational aspirations.
