East Timor’s bohemian cultural center.
Located on the outskirts of the capital, Arte Moris is an easy microlet ride from Central Dili.
There is a thriving community of artists and young people living and working in Arte Moris.
Many of the buildings are deteriorating badly but there is art everywhere. There’s a gallery housing works of art by local artists. There are very creative artworks outside too.

There doesn’t seem to be organized tours, but I got a full tour from an artist in residence.
Arte Moris was opened after East Timor became independent and is housed on the premises of the former National Museum.
