The attacks on civilians must stop
Statement from Rector Marianne Skjulhaug at Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
KHiO condemns the escalation of war crimes and supports the demand for immediate ceasefire in Palestine and Israel. The killing of civilians and violation of international law must end. All civilian lives must be protected.
KHiO has colleagues, current and former students and teaching staff that experience the ongoing, terrible acts of war. Oslo National Academy of the Arts has had, over a period of ten years, a close collaboration with the International Art Academy Palestine in Ramallah, from its foundation in 2007 until it became part of Birzeit University in 2017.
We stand in solidarity with the civilian population. Our deepest compassion is with the colleagues, staff and students who are affected.
