locally by bringing together artists from diverse cultural
backgrounds in a stimulating and supportive environment. In this
milieu, artists have formed strong professional bonds and
lifelong friendships, AAW projects responds to the needs of the
Art Community in Alexandria by providing individual studios
within an interactive environment.

full time basis

The studio ethos is one of co-operation and interaction. Studio
space and interaction with a broader community of artists is
necessary to ensure a professional attitude towards work that is
being created. Artists Residency Programí Studios address a
further need for the community of Alexandria to integrate within
a meeting place where art is seen with the respect it deserves.
