Maraya Art Centre is used for a number of design purposes. As well as a functioning gallery, visitors are invited to attend lectures led by featured artists and enroll in specialised workshops; such as their Art Smart Camp and film nights. The building's first level hosts a community centre; a multimedia haven for wannabe artists seeking to make an impact on the local scene. With a strong commitment to showcasing works from the Arab world, the second level features a permanent exhibition titled The House of Arab Art. The top level is a contemporary art gallery featuring dramatic and avant-garde pieces selected from some of the world's promising names in modern art.
