Project Space Art Jameel in Jeddah is a creative space opened by Art Jameel in 2019 as a venue for collaborations with contemporary and traditional artists, designers and creatives. An intimate and versatile space nestled in the splendour of Al-Balad, Jeddah’s historic district, Project Space Art Jameel will combine traditional arts activities with a maker-space and a broader contemporary arts programme of workshops, exhibitions, talks and events curated by Art Jameel and its partners.
The Project Space complements the Jameel House of Traditional Arts in Jeddah, the centre for artisanship, architectural discourse and heritage preservation that Art Jameel established in 2015 in cooperation with the Saudi Arabian Society for Culture and the Arts and with a one-year craft and design programme designed and delivered by the Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts. Craft modules from the one-year programme, including gypsum-carving and woodworking, will take place in the Project Space each year and constitute its core activities.
In February 2020, Project Space Art Jameel Jeddah hosted a printmaking programme. The three-week programme included exhibitions, talk and workshops, presented in collaboration with Highland Print Studio – a printmaking and digital imaging facility based in the Scottish Highlands. Supported by the British Council, the exhibition opened on February 6 (7:00pm, all welcome) and ran through March 2. More details here.
