Art Workshop Lazareti (Croatian: Art radionica Lazareti, short ARL) in Dubrovnik, Croatia, is an independent cultural center for contemporary art and performing arts venue that hosts artists, theorists, writers, activists and promotes an active and investigative approach to contemporary art and culture, society, politics and its inter-relations. Its club also hosted wide range of programs from mainstream to alternative music programs.

The Art Workshop Lazareti was established in 1988 and it is located in the old Dubrovnik harbour quarantine called Lazareti, built in 1642, immediately overlooking the Dubrovnik city beach and old harbour. The workshop has revitalized the historic building, which in 2002 had been included in the 2002 World Monuments Watch by the World Monuments Fund, and was subsequently restored.[1]

Art Workshop Lazareti was directed by Slaven Tolj, prominent artist and later director of Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka.

ARL is founding member of Clubture network since 2002,[2] and Srđana Cvijetić from ARL is the current president of the network.[3]
