thejamjar’s gallery has evolved into a contemporary project space responding to the needs of the local artistic community by fostering creativity through artist residencies and an accompanying public programme.

Through an artist residency programme UAE based artists will be given the opportunity to realise a new body of work through research, experimentation, and dialogue.

An accompanying public programme will allow for interaction and dialogue through workshops, talks and open days allowing audiences to understand and respond feeding into the artistic practice.

The progression into a project space is a natural step for thejamjar; in its support to locally based artists and in it’s ethos of making art accessible.
