The AHKCO is an ambitious educational institute which is very strongly connected to people and society. We are the only Surinamese Higher Education institution with Bachelor courses in the fields of Visual Arts, Journalism and Social Studies.
The AHKCO stands for universal norms such as academic freedom and independence: norms which are inseparably linked to the way we shape our education. Our core values are: professionalism, integrity, practicality and creativity.
Our motto is: “We make a difference”
The Visual Arts field of study at AHKCO focusses on educating people to become independently-functioning, professional and artistically-educated designers in autonomous (free) art or in applied arts (graphic design).
The AHKCO has been taking part in the National Art Fair for more than 20 years. During these fairs we have also given demonstrations in various art forms.
