Darat Al Funun

Our story goes back to 1988 when we launched an initiative to support the arts and artists of Jordan and the Arab world. We are today a home for the arts housed in six renovated historical buildings and warehouses, with a restored archaeological site in the garden

Darat al Funun actively pursues its mission in providing a platform for contemporary Arab artists. We support art practices and artistic exchange. We stimulate critical discourse and research. Visiting and artists-in-residence produce and show their work. Academics and artists give talks or workshops. The Lab is open to projects by emerging artists. We program educational activities for young people and students. Our art library, publications, films and digital archives are open for research and documentation.
