Board of Directors:

The International Academy of Art, Palestine is the main project of The Palestinian Association for Contemporary Art (PACA), which has been a formally registered NGO in Palestine since 2004. It aims to contemporize the field of Palestinian visual culture and arts, primarily by developing opportunities for arts education in Palestine. Its three intertwined goals are: providing outlets for contemporary arts education; networking; and, research in art. It therefore supports a group of innovative, educational, artistic and creative intellectual activities that strive to create a link between the local and international art scenes, thereby expanding the potential of arts and research in Palestine.

You are now free of academic requirements, free to fulfill your maximum potential as creative artists. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. (..) Be proud and confident but stay humble to allow yourselves to grow and develop. (..) Stay in touch with your growing Academy and give it all the support it deserves so that it continues to be your residence and your reference.
