The Foundation’s vision centers on cultivating a vibrant ecosystem for Saudi youth to influence both the nation and the world’s future. At the Misk Art Institute, Misk serves as a hub for cultural events and workshops, providing a platform for artistic exploration and expression.
Mission-wise, Misk pioneers innovative programs targeting youth and institutions, empowering future leaders, entrepreneurs, and scientists. Recently, the Misk Art Week showcased a six-day cultural celebration, bringing together diverse audiences through exhibitions, performances, forums, and the Art & Design Market.
The Art & Design Market, a highlight of Misk Art Week, invites applications from artists, designers, entrepreneurs, and makers. This marketplace champions creativity, cultural exchange, and professional growth, attracting both local and regional creative communities, fostering an environment for discovery and inspiration.
The extravaganza also included a Creative Forum, Educational Programs, Mentorship Sessions, Art Exhibitions, and an Art Book Fair, promoting dialogue, learning, and artistic exploration. Each had their own set of workshops and experiences, proving to give the utmost fun in all aspects. The Art & Design Market serves as a platform for artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to engage with visitors, offering unique works for collection or commission. Alongside exhibitions, workshops, and interactive installations, the event included various activities for kids and an Art Library Salon for literary and art enthusiasts. With a gift shop for event mementos, Misk Art Week fosters cultural engagement and dialogue in a vibrant setting.
