LAAF 2021: Artist Call Out

Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF) is inviting artistic proposals for our 2021 festival.

The devastating impact of climate change is being felt across the world. Global warming is fuelling extreme weather events, rising sea levels, intense heat, natural disasters, environmental degradation, food and water insecurity, mass migration, and conflict.

These consequences are already daily experiences for many within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Our 2021 festival will respond to how climate change is impacting MENA communities who are already experiencing the destruction of their environments and land due to conflict and colonialism.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted a proposal. Applications are now closed. We will be in touch with all applicants by mid January 2021.
