Conheça a arte na Palestina.
The International Academy of Art Palestine (The Academy) is an institution, which specializes in higher education programmes in the visual arts. The Academy currently offers a BA in Contemporary Visual Art and aims to develop a range of courses at BA and MA level in this field. The Academy is a unique place for the development of the creative talents of Palestinians via its four-year programme of study, which is open to all applicants. Our main aim in establishing an academy of art is to nurture the creative potential of Palestinians and to foster originality of thought, while creating a space for the development of individual expression.
The intention of the Academy is to develop a new generation of artists who are conversant with contemporary debates and methods of artistic practice who will be able to contribute to the local and international art arena. We envisage that our students will play an important role in developing the creative industries of Palestine and in shaping our visual culture. The Academy is an initiative that is anchored in Palestine and aims to maintain collective memory, history and identity through its education programmes and activities. Our mission is also to be a creative hub for international students and artists, via our exchange programmes, visiting lecturers, activities and projects.
The project to establish the International Academy of Art Palestine is generously funded by the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for the first three years (2006-2009).
