   The development and expansion of the A.I.Rs has been commonly explained as a process that goes from the West to the rest. Initiatives that promote mobility, cultural exchange and hospitality through artistic practices and beyond also have a long tradition in the Arab region.

The NACMM is an attempt to rethink A.I.Rs history from an Arab perspective in order to develop a new understanding of the richness and potentialities of A.I.Rs framed by a trans-cultural approach to creative production.
