I have learned that „waiting during the war“ is one of the most difficult feelings and we will never get used to it. Being absence of action, expecting the worst, living in vague future, remaining inactive or in a state of neglec- tion for a time, postponing your life and looking forward to the day until „something“ happens. Getting out from your fear of waiting endlessly.

AllArtNow is considered to be the first independent collective space in Syria for visual arts, multimedia and contemporary arts. Founded in 2005, the initiative aims to create greater opportunities for emerging Syrian artists and the development of the contemporary arts practice in Syria.

Since July 2012, AllArtNow closed its doors in Syria to open it to Syrian refugee families and started to work in different places in the world as a nomadic space.
