Organization Description: 

Umm El-Fahem is located in Israel's Haifa District in the northern part of the country. The city sits on the Umm El-Fahem mountain range and is the social, cultural and economic center for residents of the Wadi Ara and Triangle regions.The Umm el-Fahem Art Gallery was founded in 1996, on the initiative of local residents and artists who wanted to bring quality contemporary art to the city and its population and to exhibit original Arab and Palestinian art. With a lack of other art galleries in the Arab sector in Israel, the gallery has become an important social and cultural meeting place. Contemporary art exhibits, symposiums, creative workshops and seminars have drawn large audiences and have established the gallery as an important center in the local and international culture scene
