Welcome to Darat al Funun

Darat al Funun is a home for the arts and artists from the Arab world, located just a few minutes from downtown Amman's King Faisal Street, and from Jabal al Weibdeh's Paris Circle.

We organize exhibitions, experimental projects at The Lab, talks, films, and workshops, offer a PhD fellowship and artist residencies, publish books, and open our library and archives for research.

Our art spaces are housed in six historic buildings from the 1920s, alongside an archaeological site in the gardens, creating a unique encounter between art, architecture, and archaeology

Explore Darat al Funun through a virtual reality tour.

In 2021 we launched our sub-domain DF Online as a platform and space dedicated to exploring online curatorial, artistic, and publishing practices.
