At Mariam Dawood School of Visual Arts and Design, we:
Value current ideas and practices in visual arts and design that cut across geographical and cultural boundaries, seeking to foster an
independent vision amongst our students, faculty and alumni.
Structure our programmes in a way that allows students the freedom to forge a personalised path of exploration within the broad discipline of their choice without having to opt for a medium from the onset.
Maintain a discursive environment that encourages dialogue between diverse perspectives and paradigms.
Develop a research environment that nurtures well-informed and reflective professionals who can contribute to the world critically and creatively.
Nurture adaptive abilities that allow students to respond insightfully and urgently to the needs of the future.
