It is indeed a revolutionary call in itself to embrace the creative energies that are truly buzzing throughout our part of the world and that seek ideal spaces for expression. This year's festival offered and proved all that. I will miss Shubbak.
On the other hand, London never stops in seeking further MENA-inspired artistic projects and events. A look through My Curious Inbox shows that the exhibitions shall continue, the music will still be performed and danced to, the films are aplenty to watch and even a bit of comedy is available on the side.
