International cooperation and cultural exchange has become very important for institutions to think and act globally. The need to establish linkages with international institutes was felt strongly. Initial linkages were established through a variety of activities like international film festivals, international exhibitions and artist-in-residence programmes.
The College has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a number of institutions: The College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales, Australia, Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts, Paris, France and Instituto Superior de Arte Havano Cuba for faculty and student exchange program. A program of an academic link in the field of sustainable design is being finalized with the University of Edgehill, United Kingdom. An MOU is established between the NCA and Visual Islamic and Traditional Arts Programme, (VITA), Prince’s Foundation, UK.
These opportunities provide members of the NCA community with the much needed competitive edge to thrive internationally. At the same time, our programmes bring students and staff from all over the world to experience the NCA. Institutional linkage partners are the British Council, Anniemarie Schemmil Haus and Alliance Frances.
