Project Type: Core
Duration of Support: 2007
The Umm El-Fahim Art Gallery was established on 1996 as an initiative of local residents and artists who wanted to bring quality contemporary art to the city and its population, and to exhibit original Arab and Palestinian art.
The gallery's major aim is to enable Arab and Jewish artists to express their cultures. This is a complex process, given the divided reality of the times.
As the only art gallery in the Arab-Israeli society, Umm el-Fahim Art Gallery has become a focal point for meetings between artists from different communities and fields of activity and the general public, as well as between local and international artists.
