The Studio 244 Artist-in-Residency is designed to bring established as well as emerging artists of all disciplines to “Arad Bay Protected Area and Park” to showcase their work to a local audience, to give them a chance to create new work by providing studio space, and lastly, to provide an in-depth opportunity to learn from the Artist-in-Residence during workshops, lectures and special programs.


The Studio 244 Artist-in-Residency is an annual program that is made possible through the MOU between the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) and the Supreme Council for Environment (SCE) where by the renovated units of the Arad Bay Protected Area and Park are converted to studio space, workspace and exhibition spaces for artists of all disciplines.


Special performances and other opportunities to exhibit or present work will be discussed with an artist once their application has been reviewed.
