Artellewa Art Space

Non-member

artellewa offers artists-in-residence the opportunity to live and work in Ard El Lewa for a period of 1-3 months. Artists-in-residence integrate with the local community of Ard El Lewa and respond to the local situation in their work. artellewa specifically seeks artists who integrate social action into their artistic practice and who propose projects that incorporate creative strategies for social change in Egypt.

Location

Ard El Lewa: Egypt

Artellewa Space for Contemporary Art is located in Ard El Lewa, an informal residential neighborhood in the northwest of Giza, Egypt. Situated between the two great squatter settlements of Cairo, Boulak El-Dakrour and Imbaba, Ard El Lewa is a labyrinth of crowded dirt roads housing grey concrete buildings. It is an Egyptian variation of the crisscrossing streets just off El Ravel in Barcelona, where immigrants live in grey buildings; it is also a reminder of the banlieue (housing projects) of Paris.
