Arab Culture

A New Year - Supporting Positive + Peaceful Messages to the World

It is so important that together we continue to attend, promote and encourage those who work so passionately in their special fields; be they visual artists, musicians, intellectuals, writers or even comedians who make make us laugh every so often at our unusual predicament. The arts are truly the safest and most creative route to providing new, deep, complex and powerful narratives that aid in the understanding between cultures and unite us all in great spirit. 

Happy New Year 2017! Reasons to Celebrate Arab Arts + Culture

My answer is that the arts and any peaceful cultural activity have a very important and necessary duty to perform. By providing a different narrative to all the bad around us, they offer a safe space to contemplate the dramas playing out on the streets of our home countries and in the West, without the risk of turning to violence and without provoking more resentment.
