In this ever-evolving age, the importance and understanding of Art & Culture has over time, gained immense importance in practice and emergent professions. Visual artists, communication design, fashion, textile and jewelry designers have managed to make their role an integral part of our society and culture.
As we see an emergence of the arts as professions, we have also been witness to the marginalization of the aforementioned disciplines due to regional conflict and geopolitical instability. As consequence, the arts in our society are not being used as a tool for the creation of a dominant popular culture.
Headed by Dean Rashid Rana, the School of Visual Arts and Design (SVAD) at the Beaconhouse National University (BNU) has been at the forefront of art and design education. Since the last 10 years, SVAD graduates have been contributing to the pool of professionals across all popular and emergent media. The credit also goes to every arts institution across the country that has added to the development of aesthetic and conceptual work across their relevant disciplines.
Graduates from SVAD have gained international and local recognition in the fields of Visual Arts, communication design, fashion, textile and jewelry design. Their accomplishments have been recognized in the form of various accolades, awards and have contributed to education and academic learning across the country.
