Artists, curators and art writers can apply for a residency program in Saudi Arabia.

The Albalad program is part of the Ministry of Culture Art Residency initiative and sponsored by the Quality of Life program, one of Vision 2030 programs.

The residency will be held in 2020 in Al-Balad, Jeddah, which is an ancient port center and has been a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site since 2014.

The program supports the creative development of exceptional art practitioners through fully funded residencies that provide dedicated time, space, considered collaborations and a supportive working environment.

Residents will have access to open format studios and accommodations in close proximity to the residency.

The deadline is Feb. 29.
