Kashkul is a research, preservation, and translation collective composed of students and scholars based at American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS). Kashkul is a Partner in the International Digital Ephemera Project (IDEP) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) library, which publishes materials Kashkul collects and makes them available to a wide audience in the United States. 

In September 2017, AUIS signed a partnership with Kashkul and their artist-in-resident, Ismail Khayat, to work on a first-of-its-kind Sculpture Garden at AUIS. The Sculpture Garden features the work of student-artists from all over the country, representing both AUIS and Sulaimani University, who Khayat taught and mentored throughout the project.
