Arte Moris

Arte Moris is a non-profit art school just past the Comoro bridge heading out towards the airport.

It has a number of refugees living on the grounds now and there are 5 soldiers with rifles guarding the entrance but visitors are welcome to have a look. (July 2006)

There was a lot of destruction during the riots when the entire Comoro market on the other side of the river was burned to the ground.

Luca, the schools administrator, mentioned that they were down to 180 refugees from a high of 500 camping out on the grounds.

He is mostly concerned with distributing relief supplies until things settle down.

There are a lot of kids running around the grounds but there are still small art classes going on.

artemoris2_015 As things smooth out they hope to get back on a regular schedule. This school is really worth a visit and could use your support.

These guys made most of the banners that are hanging up around Dili trying to promote a positive vibe. They have a lot of interesting paintings on display that are for sale. The Hotel Timor exhibits a few in the hall way outside the gift shop too.
