About SPACE

SPACE is a non-profit organization established in 2015 in Oslo Norway with the purpose of curating and presenting high-quality knowledge, history, art and culture from the Middle East and North Africa with a special focus on the Arab world. SPACE brings forward the activism and hope that was sparked by the Arab Spring to create unique spaces in Norway facilitating non-hierarchical exchange of expertise, ideas, art and inspiration. We periodically change the focus of our activities to feature high-quality, underrepresented expert and artistic voices from the Middle East in events such as art exhibitions, panel debates, film screenings, reading circles, expert seminars, concerts and conferences.
