Out Of The Circle
Out Of The Circle is a visual arts organization based in Cairo, Egypt. Their mission is supporting, connecting and promoting young visual and new media artists in Egypt with their peers in North Africa and abroad to let their stories be heard through their art. Besides, they open an art residency space for international artists to learn and connect through new media/digital art in Cairo.
After the great success of the previous arts residence 2019 season, they are glad to announce the ongoing open call for the residency. The residency is now open for new media artists, researchers, and curators all year.
