Mahatat’s niche relies on its ability to take art to public spaces and streets. We have explored a variety of art forms, ranging from musical performances to visual installations. This is made possible through our solid network base in key cities and globally, as we work on promoting artistic productions to local, regional and international festivals.

Take a look at our wonderbox as well as the opera on balconies productions.

Mahatat develops tailored artistic events for educational, vocational, team building or entertainment purposes – with the belief that engaging in creative practice should not be limited to professional artists. The implementation of these events is a process that involves conceptualization, logistics and curation with relevant professional artists.

Work with us on implementing the communal mosaic and imaginary land.

Sharing knowledge is essential to Mahatat’s mandate and this is reflected through the amount of documentation and toolkits that have been made available to the public.
