Contemporary Image Collective

Contemporary Image Collective


The Contemporary Image Collective (CiC) is an independent non-profit arts initiative founded in Cairo, in 2004, by a group of visual artists and professional photographers. CiC's main goal is to establish long-term exchange programs with other cities and build up cooperation with regional and international institutions that have a long-standing experience working within this framework.

CiC does not have a residency programme per se anymore, but instead invite artists on occasional residencies as part of their curated programming – ie, when the conversation, project or engagement with an artist is such that an extended residency stay becomes a good idea. Please check their website regularly for latest program information: http://www.ciccairo.com/forthcoming_programs.html

Contemporary Image Collective equips with lighting studio, darkroom, digital lab, library and two multi-purpose rooms (20.5 m2 & 16.5 m2).
