Out of the Circle is an arts organization based in Cairo, Egypt, catering to the MENA region’s digital and new media art scene. We offer a platform that facilitates and curates events, residencies, and exhibitions for artists in a two-way exchange between the Egyptian and international art scene.
We connect Egyptian and North African artists to the global scene by helping them secure enriching opportunities abroad, and in turn organize artist residencies for international artists in Egypt. Out of the Circle also curates exhibitions and festivals on several scales, while also providing arts management and curatorial support to other artistic entities in Egypt. In parallel, we also conduct ongoing research projects and compile databases on digital and new media art to better understand and support these mediums.
