www.artschoolpalestine.com aims to overcome the physical limitations of restricted mobility by creating a virtual structure, a venue and base for the exchange, development, exhibition and discussion of visual art both in Palestine and the UK . The site is user friendly in design with materials in Arabic and English that cater to the needs of both international and Palestinian audiences. More than 50,000 visitors have visited the site since it was launched on 13 February 2005. To reach a wider public in Palestine the development of an Arabic version of the website is one of ArtSchool Palestine priorities.
Artist in Residence program (UK-Palestine)
This scheme is part of ArtSchool Palestine’s professional development program through which Palestinian artists are given the opportunity to spend up to three months to live, work and present their work to the UK public. Similarly, this program funds the residency of UK based artists who wish to go to Palestine for a period of three months to live, work and network with Palestinian arts communities.
ArtSchool Palestine organizes a series of workshops that aims to invigorate the contemporary art scene in Palestine . The program includes art workshops in deprived and under provided for areas such as refugee camps and other specialized educational programs that aim to empower art centres and artists in areas such as arts criticism, website development, arts management and also digital documentation.
The participation of Palestinian artists in international art events
One of our aims is to promote the inclusion of Palestinian art in international art events taking place around the word such as biennales, film festivals, art fairs and other showcases. We believe the active participation of Palestinian artists in international events will help develop a better understanding of Palestinian culture and will also provide Palestinian artists with the opportunity to interact and engage with the international contemporary arts scene.
