Al Ma'mal is a non-profit organization, based in Jerusalem's Old City, that aims to promote, instigate, disseminate and facilitate the making of art. 

Founded in 1997, Al Ma'mal serves as an advocate for contemporary art and a catalyst for the realisation of art projects by organising exhibitions and events. Presentations and creative encounters in the form of film screenings, artists' talks, public readings and performances are central activities in one of the Foundation's missions to raise public awareness and understanding of contemporary art and creative practice. 

The artist-in-residence programme provides both local and international artists an opportunity to develop, produce and present new work, at the same time as generating cultural exchange and forging new creative links. 

Artists also lead art workshops with youth people in and around Jerusalem, to engage them in creative practice and fostering individual thinking. 

Al Ma'mal is determined to make Jerusalem a centre for contemporary art, while considering the situation on the ground and the enduring qualities of Jerusalem.
