Artschool Palestine is a structure and place for the exchange and development of contemporary Palestinian art.
Artschool Palestine is an ambitious initiative that will increase opportunities and develop skills for contemporary artists living and working in the Palestinian Territories.
Foremost, ArtSchool Palestine is a website connecting artists to each other in order to stimulate critical debate, grow networks, showcase work to an international audience and disseminate information about opportunities. It is a forum that will project contemporary art activity happening in Palestine and its Diaspora to an international audience.
Longer term, ArtSchool Palestine aims to act as a lever to release funds to support:
A programme for exchange residencies between Palestine and the UK
Opportunities to attend workshops and training programs in the UK
Peer support amongst artists in Palestine throughout the Territories
Increased capacity building and skills development within the region
Greater opportunities for Palestinian artists in the UK
Greater awareness within the UK of contemporary Palestinian arts practice
Establishment of sustainable cultural networks between the UK & Palestine
