Shubbak 2013 is a festival of discovery. We are proud to present new talent and new works from some of the most exciting young artists originating from the Arab world – wherever they may be residing – in your neighbourhood in London, in Brussels, or in cities like Beirut, Jerusalem, Cairo, Dubai or Marrakech.

Shubbak is also a festival to discover or re-discover artists who have been pioneers in their fields for many years but have yet to receive the international platform which they so rightly deserve.
We have brought together a wonderful range of partners and locations – from the largest museums to the most intimate fringe theatres, from public squares to new galleries. Our programme spans free outdoor family days and large-scale concerts, thought-provoking talks and the latest films, with special late-night gallery openings and a wonderful closing party.
Artists are at the centre of our festival. Their imaginations open up new ways for us to understand our world.
Shubbak is the window to these imaginations.
