The Laboratory of Arts programme was launched in 2014. Since then, artists from Syria have been encouraged to apply for our yearly grants, which, thus far, have made it possible for 65 art projects to come to life.
The programme is aimed at artists and existing initiatives in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, and Turkey, as well as countries of refuge and exile in Europe. Following the Syrian migration to Europe, the grant programme was expanded from the Middle East to Europe, where most of the Syrian artists now live. They will exhibit the results at art platforms in several major European cities at the end of the grant period.
