About this Event
As independent artists around the world feel the impact of the coronavirus we explore the isolation that Arab artists already face due to borders, censorship, war and imprisonment and how they navigate these obstacles. There is often little funding, and little support from institutions or government.
As part of this we look to launch a global campaign, I Am Here, identifying artists in the MENA region and diaspora and their work across the globe. As a festival and with partner organisations, our focus is in the importance of visibility in sharing understanding and empathy.
Led by some of the most exciting Arab artists across the globe, this series aims to address the most pressing and complexed conversations of this moment and the action we can take moving forward.
