Now in its eighth year, Nour showcases a broad spectrum of arts and culture – including film, food, music, literature, poetry, performance, design and visual arts – and reaches a diverse audience of local, national and international visitors. Growing each year, Nour takes audiences on an unforgettable journey into the regions of the Middle East and North Africa, their cultures and art forms.
Nour welcomes proposals from artists, creatives and cultural practitioners of these regions, their diaspora communities, and those whose work is inspired by the arts and culture of these regions. Nour prides itself on the high-quality, contemporary nature of the work it features. It offers audiences insights into the diverse make-up of the Middle East and North Africa today, challenging stereotypes of this region and its people through cultural expression. Above all, Nour looks to inspire, and be inspired by, these reflections, which have established this annual celebration as a crucial meeting point for East and West.
