Who we are

Founded in 1998, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF) is the UK’s longest-running annual Arab arts and culture festival, platforming the best UK and international Arab artists. The festival creates a dynamic between traditional and contemporary Arab artforms, encouraging informed debate that explores, and increases, appreciation of Arab people and their rich cultures.

What we do

LAAF has a long track-record of providing informal and structured learning opportunities that raise awareness of Arab arts and culture, amongst both Arab and non-Arab audiences. We regularly deliver arts and cultural projects within local communities, schools and colleges that stimulates curiosity and promotes learning. This includes mainstream education and community arts development programmes that lead to accredited Arts Awards.
