This nonprofit foundation runs the most dynamic cultural space in the Al Fahidi Historic District. Galleries showcasing traditional and cutting-edge works by local and international artists orbit a central courtyard anchored by an arty urban-style cafe. Most of the art is for sale, a small shop stocks nifty gifts, and there's a contemporary Arab fashion boutique, reading room and upstairs workshop space.
In 2018 an additional small gallery space and souvenir-style shop opened just across the road.
