About Zawaya

More than an art gallery

Syrians of different generations have come together to create an environment which fosters appreciation and understanding of contemporary art. Our aim is to support emerging Syrian artists to express who they are, create an innovative and contemporary art scene and stimulate dialogue. Our goal at Zawaya is to be a multicultural place that hosts art in all of its forms. We aspire to build a bridge between local Syrian artists and the international art community through exhibitions and ongoing events.

Our Story

After a long devastating war that affected every household in this country and led to the immigrations of thousands of talented youth. Zawaya was founded as an initiative to rebuild the art scene in Syria. Zawaya is a platform to promote emerging Syrian artists and give them a space to communicate and convey their work freely, a place where contemporary art can foster.
