The Contemporary – Art High School Tuzla is established based on the free will of Founders and in accordance with the Framework Law on Secondary Education and Upbringing in Tuzla Canton.
The idea for school establishment has risen from the results of internal work analysis of the Association of Youth Theater Tuzla and the Association Youth of Tuzla. From 2018 to 2020, the two-year, systematic analysis and research was conducted by the Association of Youth Theater Tuzla and the Association Youth of Tuzla.
