The Arab Culture Association is an independent non-profit organization founded in 1998 as an initiative by a group of intellectuals, academics and political activists. Aiming to strengthen Arab culture and identity for Palestinians in Israel, the Arab Culture Association (ACA) is counted among the leading Palestinian institutions serving Palestinian community in Israel. The ACA is known for its pioneering programs that address a diversity of cultural fields, including: Arabic language, arts and literature, cultural tourism, and the promotion of higher education and critical thinking.
We work towards a Palestinian Arab society keen about its language, identity, and cultural heritage that is culturally and academically autonomous, creative, productive and socially responsible, and based on humanitarian and pluralistic values.
As such, our work centres on developing the intellectual foundation and infrastructure to support the cultural independence of Palestinian Arabs in Israel in the fields of art, literature and critique. As such, our work revolves around raising awareness of identity and collective rights, and preserving the Arabic language as a fundamental component of identity. We work to ensure access to knowledge sources on the Arabic language and to provide a central, urban communicative space for the exchange of ideas, and the creation and distribution of cultural productions. Moreover, the ACA strives to foster the forefront of youth leadership that is educated and conscious of its identity and social responsibility.
