Artistic and Cultural Activities Division

The Student Activities Department – Artistic and Cultural Activities Division prepares students to create, practice, and study the arts in a context that emphasizes cultural diversity, community participation, and technical innovation through the provision of performances and exhibitions. It seeks to deepen understanding of different arts and cultures, expand the scope of artistic taste among participants, and enrich the quality of life at the university, in our community, our state, our nation and the world.

The Message:
The division’s mission lies in spreading artistic and literary sophistication and revitalizing the Iraqi people by creating a revolution in which the wills of those in charge of the creative artistic process come together with the aim of directing a society that has lived for a period of time in the darkness of backwardness, ignorance and illiteracy, which requires shaking off the dust of that legacy and moving towards a new world that restores confidence to society in restoring its pioneering and civilizational role, especially in Mosul Governorate, whose land witnessed the highest and most beautiful civilizations and produced the best scholars, writers, artists, politicians and athletes. In order to move the scientific wheel in this division according to what is available to it, we have decided that the outputs of this institution should be in spreading the academically framed artistic culture in a way that makes it effective and influential and holds its true pioneering role in mobilizing enthusiasm and determination and developing artistic taste to build our dear province.
