Edge Of Arabia was founded by a small collective of artists who met in the mountains of Aseer, Saudi Arabia, in 2003. What began as a border-crossing collaboration, against the backdrop of the last Gulf War, is now an established platform which has grown bold through the realisation of international projects & the grassroots support for its mission.
