Artists’ Residencies

Home Visual Arts Artists’ Residencies

Over the past few years CAP has supported a number of talented young Palestinian artists wishing to participate in residencies internationally. These include Mohamed Abusal and Shareef Sarhan, both from Gaza, who held residencies at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. Another artist, Ibrahim Jawabreh, from Ramallah, held a residency at the Università delle Idee(UNIDEE), in Biella, Italy. All three residencies were supported by the Welfare Association, the French Consulate General and the Ministry of Culture.


CAP has recently forged a partnership with the Delfina Foundation for an initiative that will give Palestinian artists between the ages of 25 – 40 the opportunity to take a residency in London.The first was offered for the spring of 2010, and was awarded to Jawad Al Malhi from Jerusalem. Hazem Harb from Gaza was awarded the second residency for the summer of 2011. Another artist will be chosen for 2013.


Some artists are chosen for residencies directly by CAP, while others are found through open calls. Other opportunities are presented to CAP by the artists themselves.
