Located in the heart of Beirut, Dar El-Nimer for Arts and Culture was founded in 2016 as an independent non-profit art foundation for historical, modern and contemporary cultural productions from Palestine and beyond. Dar El-Nimer promotes deep cultural, historical and intellectual awareness by hosting productions by artists, curators, writers, historians, performers and filmmakers, whose works engage with the challenging social realities and political currents shaping the region. Dar El-Nimer is also responsible for showcasing the El-Nimer Collection, the private art collection of the founder, Rami El-Nimer.
Preserve: Celebrating the region’s rich and complex cultural heritage to trace its continuity, creativity and perseverance. Dar El-Nimer challenges stereotypes through arts and culture, opening up the possibilities for deeper understanding.
Experience: Broadening the palette of cultural and artistic experiences. Dar El-Nimer offers a vibrant space for interaction. Alongside its annual exhibitions, its space is open for lectures, panel discussions, film screenings, musical and theatrical performances and workshops.
Outreach: Inviting schools, universities, institutions, communities and individuals to develop an understanding of arts and culture through activities and dialogue.
