There is a current lack of specialist art education in contemporary visual art in Palestine. The International Art Academy of Palestine (IAAP) currently provides a pioneering specialized BA program with the emphasis on research-based art practice. Our aim is for our students to be conversant with contemporary debates in visual art, to be able to continue on to postgraduate study, professional practice and to have an impact on local and regional creative industries. This project showcases the knowledge of contemporary visual art accumulated by students in the academy. It showcases the innovative and creative talents of Palestinian youth.
