  ArtSchool Palestine: New Website for Contemporary Palestinian Art | babelmed ArtSchool Palestine is first a structure and place for exchange and development of Contemporary Palestinian Art, it is also 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.

The Site includes a virtual Library, op-eds, information on Palestinian Cultural Landscape and on the main Cultural centres in the territories, an updated agenda about Art events taking place in Palestine.

It also allows to start correspondence with artisits, giving contact details, and absolutely encourage foreigners to travel to Palestine and whilst there offer to teach, hold practical art classes, work on a creative project etc. ArtSchool can also help with contacts and arrange itineraries.

Dynamic, the Website also shelters articles about Illustration, Architecture, Films, Literature and Poetry, Visual Arts.

In the 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, and give opportunities to attend workshops and training programs in the UK.

The use of Internet in an exchange project involving Palestine is crucial, it can peer and support artists in Palestine and increase capacity building and skills development within the region without confronting day to day movements difficulties. It also creates a window on the Art international scene, avoiding the entries and exits problems that face all Palestinian Artists like any normal Palestinian citizen.

We wish good luck to this virtual and real Palestinian Art School...
