Campus Art Dubai (CAD) is the first and only programme of its kind in the UAE; the intensive six-month seminar and residency programme provides Emirati and UAE-based artists with the opportunity to develop their practices under the mentorship of world renowned tutors and to showcase their work during Art Week.
Meetings occur over weekends and feature group critiques, discussions, and presentations, taught and led by a local and international cast of academics, critics, curators and artists. The course provides and services a space for critical thinking and the exchange of ideas and skills, in which participants are encouraged to collaborate, debate and challenge.
Following the educational part of the programme, artists will participate in a 2-month residency, during which they will receive support in transforming and developing their initial research ideas into work which can be produced and exhibited, receive access to studio spaces and production facilities, have the opportunity to take part in a range of public events and open studios, and be able to exhibit their work in a final curated group exhibition during Art Week.
Applications for CAD 7.0 are now open. The deadline for applications is September 16, 2018.
