Sharjah Art Foundation


Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) offers visual and performance artists and art practitioners including curators, writers and critics, an opportunity to spend time in Sharjah as a place of rest, reflection, work or exploration. Residencies are by invitation, through institutional collaborations or by open call.

While the specific aims of a residency may vary, SAF looks for proposals that reflect, in a broad sense, an interest and engagement with the local and regional context. This could simply be the desire for a new cultural experience that might later impact an artist??s work, or it may result in a project that is a direct or site-specific response. With this programme we aim to promote the possibilities of exchange between artists, the local community and the broader cultural landscape.

Currently SAF has two dedicated residency spaces. Residency opportunities are announced on the SAF website.
