Born out of a collaboration between Arts AlUla and Cortona On The Move, Cortona On The Move AlUla (March 2022) exhibited works by 19 international artists in AlJadidah, AlUla’s emerging arts district and held a 21-day artist residency inviting six photographers from Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, Slovakia and Italy in dialogue with the landscape, stories and spirit of AlUla.

During their residency, the six photographers experienced a programme of training and cultural exchange with opportunities of AlUla. They were guided by a group of internationally renowned curators, photographers and lecturers including Kholood Albakr, François Hébel, Nathalie Herschdorfer, Corinne Noordenbos, Arianna Rinaldo and Gaia Squarci.

Following the residency, the artists presented their works in six individual exhibitions at the Cortona On The Move 2022 Festival in Cortona, Italy between 14 July to 2 October 2022.
