ArtWorks: A Teaching Artist Residency Programme

ArtWorks: A Teaching Artist Residency Programme, was established in 2013 to develop a cadre of teaching artists that can practice and work in museums, arts centers and schools. The programme team works closely with universities to identify recent graduates with strong skills in the arts and that have an interest in teaching. The aim of the residency is to provide UAE-based emerging artists with internship opportunities, mentorship and potential employment.

ArtWorks takes place in the Art Studio at Manarat Al Saadiyat where artists will work alongside a group of experienced arts educators and have access to a large network of creators and artists. As part of the residency, selected artists will have the unique opportunity to set up a dedicated, fully equipped studio space in a vibrant arts community hub.
