Vasl’s Taaza Tareen is a residency program for recent art-school graduates that began in 2005. Through Taaza Tareen, Vasl offers junior artists a nurturing and open ended environment, with mentorship from a community of senior artists, academics, art critics and curators.

“Through its Taaza Tareen program, Vasl has supported artists at formative stages of their profession, a crucial time when their practice is often most receptive to growth through incorporating new ideas and experiences…”

The 8th Taaza Tareen Residency, To-let, will focus on specific sites in the city to generate creative responses. To-let aims at creating a sense of simultaneous happenings, which provides the opportunity for resident artists to reach out to a wider audience, leading to experimental collaborations and discourses.
