Arab Arts Focus

 Edinburgh Edition

about aaf

The past six years have been a roller coaster in world history, with conflicts, wars and extremist currents taking hold of various nations. Nowhere is this felt more clearly than the Arab World, the site of most physical conflicts, and the seat of on-going struggles of power and ideology. The echoes of these conflicts have also extended to the shores of Europe, with the influx of refugees and migrants seeking a safe life and economic opportunities prompting Europe to reconsider the extent of its relationship with this part of the world.

Amidst this scattered reality, arts and culture can act as a vehicle of resistance and change. A tool of expression much hated by totalitarian regimes (and banned and prevented whenever possible), the arts are humanity’s method of asserting their right to expression, freedom, and individuality. More importantly, art can serve as a tool for development, capacity building, evolving different and non-reductive discourses on the Arab world, and changing stereotypes about the Arab region; opening the door for mutual understanding at a time when it is needed the most.
