One of the ways in which almakan promoted the arts was through the Artist Residency Program. In it, an artist would have a given time frame of around 2-6 weeks to have the freedom to transform our past gallery space into a studio environment that belonged to them. This allowed for the people seated in the restaurant, as well as the people outside the building crossing the streets, to get a glimpse of the working environment of the artist, and be able to enter and mingle with them - providing them with both exposure and networking to put their art forward.
