Bahrain is building a vibrant Digital Arts economy and Think Tank is a part of it.
There is a growing community of Bahraini artists looking to take their love of Film & Games and to step into the world of CG.
In 2023, Think Tank partnered with Tamkeen, the Kingdom’s economic labour fund, to build a comprehensive, career-oriented training program that teaches Bahraini artists the technical skills, real-world software and production workflows required to excel in the industry.
Called the Passion to Profession Digital Arts Training Program- it is the first of its kind in the region- and will foster the growth of a localized Film & Games industry while promote existing VFX, Animation and Game Art companies to establish studios in Bahrain.
The next program starts June 5, 2024
We want you to transform Bahrain’s digital arts industry.
