The Delfina Foundation facilitates artistic exchanges and dialogue between the UK and the Middle East & North Africa via a programme of artistic residencies and related public events. Our public programme (including talks & exhibitions) provides platforms for artists to explore common areas of practice, showcase their work and look at the link between the arts and civic society.
Renowned art patron Delfina Entrecanales established the foundation as the successor to Delfina Studios Trust. Over its 20-year existence, Delfina Studios became Britain’s largest artist residency space and earned an unprecedented reputation in the arts world. As a charitable and non-political organisation, The Delfina Foundation aims to develop the next generation of international artists.
