For some time now the impression has been created, that art and culture have a lesser place in society. Mainly because of the speed with which technological progress is developing. This while art in all forms is essential for mental and creative development.
Likewise, it is a sound image and representation of social movements and currents This has been for centuries. In this context, it is clear, how important the training of the Fine Arts Faculty is. It should also be emphasized that the multicultural character of ATAFOM University International will have a Positive Influence on the creative collaboration between the students.
Finally, I express my confidence in both, the staff and the students, that the motivation and energy will bring success.
