What We Do

Founded in 1998, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival is a registered charity delivering arts and community programmes that bring diverse cultures together, increasing appreciation and awareness of Arab culture and arts at a local, national and international level.

Our year-round programme of events and community projects includes Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, established in 2002 and still the UK’s premier annual Arab arts festival.

Each year, our festival brings a thrilling celebration of Arab culture to venues across the city and showcases the richness of Arab culture through a packed programme of visual art, music, dance, film, theatre, literature and events.
