MISSION Mophradat is an international nonprofit contemporary arts association that creates opportunities for thinking, producing, and sharing among contemporary artists from the Arab World and their peers everywhere. Mophradat sees its activities as tools—artistic, discursive, logistical, and financial—for artists and cultural thinkers to use toward inventing new arts practices, arts organizations, and art publics. Mophradat believes the content—ideas, artworks, and relationships—generated through its activities contributes to diversifying the artistic and intellectual ecology; making it more vital and compelling, and able to play an emancipatory role in the Arab World and elsewhere.
Mophradat is partnering with various international organizations to set up residency opportunities for artists, musicians and writers from the Arab world. Residencies provide an occasion for practitioners to immerse themselves in a different context and take time out from their regular routine to focus exclusively on their practice. It is also a chance to visit international exhibitions and institutions, and meet a new art community and professional peers.
