Al-Ma’mal serves as an advocate for contemporary art and a catalyst for the realization of art projects in Jerusalem, in spite of the situation on the ground, and to honor Jerusalem’s own enduring qualities as a complex, cultured and ancient city.

The Jerusalem Show is an art and culture event that is comprised of art exhibitions, performances, workshops, talks, film screenings, and guided tours. It takes the whole Old City as a context and a venue to engage with presenting works and events that reflect the importance of Jerusalem as an artistic, cultural, political and social urban space. The Show is part of Qalandiya International, a biennial celebration of Palestinian art and culture organized in partnership with other Palestinian institutions.
