Manifesto Middle East
Active internationally with engineering and cultural urban planning projects, as well as the distribution and executive co-production of exhibitions, the Manifesto group develops its activities through its subsidiary Manifesto Middle East.
Manifesto Middle East is working on issues such as the creation of cultural and artistic venues, support for the contemporary Saudi art scene and inviting art into the city, as well as into the heart of the landscape. Manifesto Middle East is firmly rooted in the cultural and transformation sectors, and encourages dialogue with French and international artistic and cultural initiatives.
