The aim of the Federation of Visual Artists in Suriname (FVAS) is to enable all stakeholders in the art section to work together for the benefit of all concerned and to promote visual art, both inside and outside of Suriname.
The FVAS strives to do so by organizing (and participating in) exhibitions, art events, educational projects and other community projects, both on a national and an international level, organizing lectures, debates, workshops, seminars, symposiums and more, and making use of all legal means that will enable the FVAS to reach its goal.
The wide spectrum of activities shows that the FVAS is a dynamic organization: networking both on a local level as well as an international level, and organizing and participating in many art projects.
The FVAS was founded on October 17, 1998, in Paramaribo, Suriname, South America. Currently the FVAS has about 40+ members.
