The deadline for proposals is 9am GMT on Monday 27 March 2017.
For 17 glorious days, Nour 2016 shone light on the best in contemporary arts and culture from the Middle East and North Africa, in venues across the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The programme featured 36 events and 84 individual performances, across 16 venues with 28 partners, with artists from 15 countries presenting their work across visual arts, music, poetry, theatre, film, dance, and literature. In addition, the festival’s broad and engaging Creative Learning Programme featured a series of exciting projects and activities from shadow puppetry to kite-making, Arabic typography to Arabian Nights.
Take a look at some of this year’s wonders at Nour’s Instagram and feel free to share your own images from the festival using our hashtag #NourFestival or copying in @NourFestival.
We look forward to seeing you at Nour 2017.
