The Jameel Houses of Traditional Arts

A key pillar of Art Jameel’s pioneering work to preserve tangible and intangible cultural heritage is the network of Jameel Houses of Traditional Arts. The result of Art Jameel’s long-term collaboration with the Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts, the Jameel Houses of Traditional Arts have spread from Cairo (opened 2009), to the Old Town of Jeddah (2015), and now to the Dumfries House estate in Scotland (under development).

Internationally-recognised art network

Combining traditional arts teaching, cultural heritage protection, and support for fledgling entrepreneurs, this internationally-recognised network is unparalleled in its ambition and achievements.

Information for students

Information for prospective students is set out on each Jameel House of Traditional Arts’ page.
