who we are


Manifesto١٣ is Kuwait’s first and only art-based

alternative ‘unschool.’

You might be asking yourself, “What does that even mean?” 

Well, at Manifesto١٣, we don’t aim to condition and compete, we aim to question, introspect, and compassionately co-create—we like to look outside the box!

We teach social and environmental issues through the arts and guide students towards asking crucial questions, all while exploring art history, theory, technique, and practice. Our courses are aligned with a social cause, and we collaborate with organizations, charities, non-GMOs, or individuals.

It’s a one-of-a-kind learning experience, so join us on this journey!

our manifesto

you are never finished.

your practice should always evolve.

don’t aspire to be famous.

be an artist. get ink in your hands.

don’t erase. work with artists in your community.

show them your art. collaborate make art education accessible.

be present. share your space. teach to enhance your practice.

art can move a society.

commit to a course. learn a new skill.

find your voice. start over.

don’t copy artists, learn from them.

artist is not restricted to galleries.

discover your inner self.

humans,  connect! beauty is all around us. give back to society.

art can move generations. humans can thrive in an artistic environment.

art is not prescribed, it’s explored. 

schools do not pay attention to art.

it’s okay if you don’t get it. art should be critiqued, not judged.
