The Maryam and Edward Eisler Foundation

The Maryam and Edward Eisler Foundation was established in 2011 to promote art to a wider general audience by supporting existing institutions and their arts-centred programmes. In order to help enlighten and educate the arts community at large and the general public in particular, the foundation is presently funding curatorial positions in established institutions and places of higher education, contributing to artists’ residency positions, supporting exhibitions and arts-related conferences, as well as sponsoring art publications, talks and debate platforms. The foundation is pleased to be funding the Programme for Cultural Curatorial Practitioners (PCCP), which aims to mentor a future generation of Middle Eastern curators while supporting the infrastructural development of the region’s fledgling arts institutions.


Katara, Valley of Cultures

The Katara Cultural Village Foundation, born out of a long-held vision to position the state of Qatar as an international cultural lighthouse, is made possible by the leadership of HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of Qatar. Its long-term goal is to establish itself as a cultural hub and to promote dialogue and exchange on cultural, artistic, intellectual and innovative matters. For this reason Katara Cultural Village is delighted to support A&P Summit and host the lunch at the British Museum on 12 January 2012. www.katara.net
