Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival
babelmed - 04/07/2011
Founded by the Liverpool Arabic Centre and the Bluecoat (www.thebluecoat.org.uk) the Festival’s aim is to raise awareness and promote Arabic arts and culture in Liverpool and beyond, the Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year.
Coming at a time when huge changes are taking place in the Arab world, this edition intends to reflect and investigate the themes of history and change through its rich programme featuring concerts, performances, real life stories, exhibitions, screenings, talks, workshops and more. Conceived before the recent Arab revolutions, yet responding to the new political landscape, the Festival will present artists whose work reflects on the position of the individual within competing discourses of politics, identities, geographies and religions.
