  16. 16. Al Hoash provides a programme of art courses and workshops that target women, children, youth, underprivileged communities, and the surrounding schools. Last year, the programme of workshops was very successful and incorporated over 750 participants - students, youth, and women. The Art Residency programme brings together Palestinian artists from the Diaspora and foreign artists to work on thematic art projects in an attempt to encourage art production and creativity. This programme aims to build bridges of cultural exchange and communication among Palestinian, Arab, and international artists as it incorporates the work of Palestinian artists and involves community participation.Al Hoash is also working on a long-term project to build the Palestinian art archive. The objective of the archive is to create a contemporary file for Palestinian artists that would serve to record the various styles and periods of Palestinian art production. The archive would eventually be an integral part of the museum. Al Hoash has also started a series of publications commencing with the book entitled Palestinian Women Artists - The Land = The Body = The Narrative, which is intended to be the first in a series of books on art in Palestine. The book presents an anthology of Palestinian women artists accompanied by analytical essays and visual presentations. All the programmes mentioned above are integral to the framework of the museum and pave the road towards its establishment. It is crucial to give space to the current trends in art and to be aware of the socio-political forces that are shaping Palestinian art and the international trends that cannot be ignored. At the same time it is critical for the Palestinian Art Museum not to favour one art form over another. The mission of this institution is to promote Palestinian visual arts in all its forms. <br />16<br />

  18. 18. The Palestinian Legislative Council passed a new law on March 31, 2011 granting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas the power to add corporate sponsors to the Palestine flag. 102 Members of the The Palestinian Legislative Council voted for the new law with 3 abstaining and 27 voting against the motion.<br />The decision is one of the latest moves by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to address the financial crisis in light of a decrease in international funding for the Palestinian Authority. “I am a business guy, I know how to make money,” Fayyad boasted. “We gotta do what we gotta do in order to build our country.” Fayyad sees himself as the champion of transparency and claims to have tried his hardest to curb corruption in the PA. “I am the corruption doctor and this idea [getting corporate sponsors for the Palestinian flag] is my brainchild.”<br />18<br />
