About us

The Academy of Islamic and traditional Arts (AITA) aims to provide a network and platform for a broad range of Islamic and traditional artists from all over the world. We offer a wide range of short courses, which suit people with different levels of expertise, from beginners to professionals.

AITA actively documents Islamic and traditional arts and artists through interviewing, recording and photographing individuals and groups throughout the world about their studies, researches, traditions and crafts.

Moreover, AITA organises field trips for students and interested people to a variety of destinations. This allows a direct interaction with Islamic and traditional arts.

Our overarching goal is to integrate and connect art and cultural heritage with educational activities.
