Faiza Mushtaq

Dean & Executive Director at Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture

Welcome to the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture. This is an exciting time to be at IVS as we celebrate the thirty-year milestone in our history, and look ahead at taking the institution to new levels of creative and academic excellence. The School has established itself as a premiere institution of higher learning in Pakistan, and has trained an entire generation of artists, designers, architects, scholars and creative practitioners whose influence is felt widely across society. We are continuing to expand and upgrade our programmes and facilities, and aim to reach even higher standards of excellence over the next thirty years.

The IVS philosophy has always emphasized a holistic approach towards learning, one that recognizes our responsibility towards the community that we are part of and engagement with local, regional, and global developments. The research and creative practice of our students and faculty is grounded in the urban context of Karachi while also being informed by ideas, resources and collaborations reaching across our inter-connected, globalized world. Within the IVS community, we are firmly committed to upholding the values of academic and artistic freedom, compassion, dignity and inclusivity.
