About

TAMAAS, a cross-cultural arts organization

Tamaas is the Arabic word for two things touching, a literal point of contact across frontiers. Tamaas focuses on the interstices between the arts and between cultures.

Among its objectives is to place artists and thinkers in direct contact with disempowered communities, and to work with organizations in their home countries to further their social and creative potential. Tamaas seeks to explore the question of how to translate the micro-efforts of creative individuals into a worldwide conversation. Together, artists and communities create projects in visual and performance arts, poetry, translation, and cinema.
