Arts Seminar in Baghdad – Workshop Series

Arts Seminar in Baghdad is a workshop series that invites Iraqi artists and creatives to engage with their art works and interventions in the urban space of Baghdad. The seminar starts with a kick-off session – workshops and exercises at TARKIB Baghdad Contemporary Arts Institute and in the city –, followed by regular mentoring sessions and results in an group exhibition in Baghdad. The latest edition – Baghdad Walk IV – took place at Baghdad Central Station.
