Welcome to FAVAlbania

The Foundation for Albanian Visual Arts Across Borders (FAVA) was conceived as a non-profit organization which would invite financial and in-kind support from the corporate business community in Tirana to participate with and develop cultural life in Albania. The focus of the foundation’s support is on preserving the permanent collection at the National Gallery of Art, Tirana while also supporting the dynamic artistic community in Albania.

The Foundation for Albanian Visual Arts Across Borders (FAVA) seeks to broaden international understanding and tolerance through cultural exchange and art education for children thereby increasing family participation and increasing public attendance at the National Gallery of Arts.
