Join us for an informal social event to get to know our our current group of international residents.

In addition to having a drink and chat with our residents, we hope this social event will also be an occasion to meet and make connections with other local art practitioners in the city.

This season we are delighted to be hosting Daniah Alsaleh (Saudi Arabia), Han Mengyun (UK associate), Jenna Shaw (USA), Kvet Nguyen (Slovakia), Madhushree Kamak (India), Mohammad Al Faraj (Saudi Arabia), Peyman Shafieezadeh (UK associate), Pilar Elgueta (Chile), Shenece Oretha (UK associate), Sheyda Aisha Khaymaz (Turkey/USA), and Tara Al Dughaither (Saudi Arabia).

This is a casual event with refreshments provided. At 18:30 there will be a 30 minute pause to the conversations to allow our residents to briefly introduce their practices to all those gathered.

These summer season residencies were made possible by our residency partners and supporters, including ARTUS Chile, The Brooks International Fellowship Programme, Tate, Saudi Visual Arts Commission, and Delfina Foundation’s regional patron networks for Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean.
