About PAA Europe
Pacific Arts Association-Europe
The Pacific Arts Association-Europe (PAA-E) shares the stated aims of the international Pacific Arts Association (PAA).
As a result of a distinctly European focus towards the Pacific, mainly due to the history of contacts between Europe and Oceania, the specific aims of PAA-E are:
- To promote interest and research in documentation, archives, and collections of Oceania in Europe
- To encourage diffusion of information through exhibitions, publications, symposia, broadcasting, and other media
- To foster communication between institutions and individuals in Oceania and Europe in view of the general aims of PAA
- To seek funds in support of the aims stated above
PAA-E members meet once a year at a museum or exhibition center in Europe, combining the visit to an exhibition or collections with presentations on recent activities in the domains of Reseach and Exhibitions.
