The devastating impact of climate change is being felt across the world. Global warming is fuelling extreme weather events, rising sea levels, intense heat, natural disasters, environmental degradation, food and water insecurity, mass migration, and conflict.
These consequences are already daily experiences for many within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The Liverpool Arab Arts 2021 festival, to be held Friday 16 – Sunday 25 July, 2021, will respond to how climate change is impacting MENA communities who are already experiencing the destruction of their environments and land due to conflict and colonialism.
They welcome proposals from artists from or based in the MENA region, or artists across the globe with MENA or Arab heritage, that responds directly to, or are influenced by, issues related to climate change.
- The climate and environmental crisis within the Arab world
- Local and global issues related to conflict, colonialism or climate justice
- Works/ideas that increase awareness and encourage a global exchange of new ideas
- Works that imagine a more sustainable future
Proposals can be in any art form, including: dance, theatre, music, visual art, spoken word, or literature.
Deadline: Friday 4 December, 2020.
