Description:

Rawalpindi Campus

The Rawalpindi Campus of the NCA is envisaged as a second campus to enable larger enrollment for students in the arts and to provide greater geographical access to students from the northern reaches of Pakistan. The old hostel building in Liaqat Bagh was handed over to the NCA primarily for its refurbishment and adaptive reuse as an appropriate location for the Rawalpindi Campus. As this building was insufficient for purposes of the Campus, the entire Liaquat Bagh Complex including the Auditorium has been made available to the NCA to enable further physical development. The Rawalpindi/Islamabad area has an active body of professionals, many of whom are NCA graduates, as well as other groups who have been examining and working towards the setting up of art schools. Their resources will be utilized in addition to the inputs that the current NCA faculty will provide. The Federal Minister for Education has ensured the autonomy necessary for the success of this venture.

The project offers an exciting and dynamic future and a turning point in the history of the NCA. Bearing in view the ethos and model of NCA, the academic plan has been developed to ensure continuity in the integrated teaching of the visual arts through the joint foundation course and shared lectures during the course of studies leading to the Bachelors degree. Additionally, to ensure cultural diversity, gender parity and economic group representation in the student body, an important aspect of the NCA, the Rawalpindi Campus has admitted students countrywide, following the same procedures of testing and eligibility as already established. The Rawalpindi Campus will maintain the same academic standards as Lahore and will also offer the same academic programmes, initially it had started with two departments last year: Architecture and Fine Arts, the initial intake was 20 students in each department. In 2007, it is envisaged that the Departments of Film and Television, Textile Design and Communication Design will be launched. The Departments of Product Design and Multimedia Arts will be instituted in 2008 followed by the Department of Cultural Studies in 2009. It is also envisaged that a Department of Performing Arts, incorporating Theatre, Puppetry, Music and Dance will be developed as a special feature of the Rawalpindi Campus. The Rawalpindi Campus will offer residential facilities for male and female students, a visiting faculty hostel, equipment for studios and laboratories, academic buildings and a library. The Rawalpindi Campus faculty will be inducted in keeping with the NCA model comprising a core permanent faculty, and visiting, contract and guest faculty, both national and international.

Entering its third year and with new management in place the development speed has a very noticeable picked up. A large ceramic kiln which was fired on November 17th, 2007, marked initiation of ceramic design section at NCA RWP campus. First ever in country will be the glass art section being developed for launch in ner future. It is planned to update all its curriculum so that it is at par with the international standards elsewhere. The said campus will ultimately be reserved for performing arts & multimedia when CDA; finally, agrees ro allocate land for its final destination and setup somewhere in the beautiful and congenial environment in federal capital Islamabad--Nsirmalik (talk) 20:30, 21 November 2007 (UTC).

Mr Nsir Malik, has been assigned the responsibilities of NCA Rawalpindi campus as Director. Technology in service of conventional art is the main expertise and mandate of Mr Malik. Contemporary Ceramics, Glass Art, Claymation, Classical Animation, Interactive CD and PAINTOGRAPHY® are in pipeline for execution in the very near future; which will provide a definite lead to NCA Rawalpindi campus.
