In the frame of Damascus culture capital AllArtNow are sending open Call for Submissions to the 1st Video Art Festival taking place at AllArtNow in December 2008. The festival focuses on the presentation and discussion of low budget and experimental video art.

The festival will consist of a series of screenings and moderated discussions that address issues represented in the selection of works included in the program.

All Art Now was founded in 2005 in Damascus as private initiative that focuses on Syrian artists – especially the youth.
Our foundation was launched as a reaction to the disorganization in art industrial and the limited possibilities for Syrian artists to work in this field
One of our main projects which we are working on is:

  • Define & support contemporary Syrian arts – especially Installations and video arts.
  • Network with other organizations (in & out of Syria) to attend different activities for arts (exhibitions – workshops – exchange…)
