ArtSchool Palestine is a nonprofit organization founded in 2005 by a group of art professionals, curators, and artists based in Palestine and London. The virtual presence of the organization has enabled it to work across Palestine and abroad, commissioning and producing exceptional projects by outstanding contemporary artists. Over the past five years, its projects have materialized in a range of different sites and situations, and in countless mediums.
The organization is powered by the belief that artists are capable of creating visionary works that impact the way we view our world. Since its launch in 2005, activities have included involvement in a wide range of projects—from presenting exhibitions, film and video screenings, lectures, performances, and publications, to establishing networks and initiating partnerships for reflection, dialogue, and exchange.
ArtSchool Palestine is committed to the production, facilitation, and circulation of artistic practices, and to providing networking opportunities with the goal of enhancing cultural exchange, promoting educational programs, and encouraging critical debates.
ArtSchool Palestine’s program of activities include: artists in residency; creative encounters; exhibitions; production grants; and a resource center.
