Fire Station is a contemporary art space committed to supporting artists through its artist in residence program as well as engaging the local communities in Qatar by providing opportunities and events, which include exhibitions and public programs.

Fire Station provides facilities, production support, mentorships, and curatorial support. Residents are selected through an Open Call application process, after which a jury convenes to make a final selection of up to 20 artists.

The Fanoon Teaching Artist Fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar is a 9-month printmaking publishing and teaching residency for emerging to mid-career teaching artists.

During the academic year, fellows will design and co-teach a two-semester Master Class in the Painting + Printmaking Department, which introduces undergraduate students to critical topics and cross/multi-disciplinary approaches within the expanded field of contemporary print media. Residents will be given a studio space and the opportunity to further develop their art practice, and work with faculty members, students, and visiting artists, to create a community of artists engaged in scholarly activity and research.

Families

Creativity starts from a young age! We have collected a list of resources for the family to enjoy and ignite the path for the little ones. This is for creatives that would like to get their families involved in art, whether for workshops, classes, and/ or educational toolkits to help in learning about art. We have them under this tab.
