Tarek Mitri

Chairman of the Board of Trustees

The Institute for Palestine Studies has sought to be faithful to the mission it was set up to accomplish by serving Palestine – the cause of the Palestinian people, the Arabs and many friends across the world. It seeks to spread awareness of the need for research, reflection and dialogue on all the Palestinian people’s concerns and aspirations and on the various aspects of their history and living heritage.

Rami El-Nimer

Founder of Dar El-Nimer

It gives us great pleasure at Dar El-Nimer to host an exhibition of works by Arab and Palestinian artists in support of the Institute for Palestine Studies, which has held a special place in the hearts of Arabs and Palestinians since it was founded in Beirut in 1963 and which now plays a historic role in serving the Palestinian cause and other Arab causes.

Khaled Farraj

Director General of the IPS

This art exhibition is the culmination of cultural and intellectual endeavours undertaken by a select group of Arab creative artists during their careers. Visionary artists and researchers who seek out the truth complement each other’s efforts, working together as intellectuals who speak their minds, who are not beholden to any authority and who subject their creativity only to considerations of serving the truth and defending justice.
