About The Arab Arts Focus

The Best Contemporary Performances in the Arab World

We believe that arts and culture can act as a vehicle for resistance and change amidst this tumultuous reality. The arts are humanity’s way of asserting the right to freedom, enabling individual expression. Perhaps equally important, art can encourage non-reductive discourses and discount negative stereotypes, in this case pertaining to the Arab world. Art opens the door to mutual understanding at a time when it is most needed.
