A message from your Deputy Director

In a city that is well known for its culture, arts, and heritage, I step into the role of Deputy Director for Sharjah Performing Arts Academy with gratitude and excitement for the exclusive performing and production arts experiences that SPAA is fostering.

Here at SPAA, we are on an ongoing mission and endless commitment to continuously cultivate, create, support, and promote the work of creatives, artists and art practitioners by providing professional academic programmes facilitated through our exceptional, world-class tutors.

In addition, we strive to strengthen the organisation’s narrative and communications strategy with staff and students to establish solid organisational operations, board engagement, and communicative dialogue.

This challenging, intensive development and implementation phase at SPAA is framed around endorsing the role of performing and production arts in the region.

Join us now; we are here to embrace talents and guide you to become a truly authentic artist.
