We are thrilled to announce that earlier this year we won the full service Marketing and PR contract for Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2018 after successfully delivering this strategic and operational activity for the charity since 2015. This is now our fourth year working with this exciting organisation and look forward to creating and revealing this years campaign – including fresh graphics for the summer programme.
Earlier this year LAAF was one of 14 festivals provided with extra funding to allow an even more ambitious musical programme as the city celebrates a decade since its year as European Capital of Culture.
The UK’s biggest annual Arab arts festival has also revealed the date and headline acts for its ever-popular finale event Family Day. The event will return to Sefton Park Palm House on Sunday 15 July to showcase some of the hottest talent in Arab music, including boundary breaking Danish-Palestinian percussionist Simona Abdallah, Simo Lagnawi & Gnawa London, who will bring Gnawa – the music of formerly enslaved black Africans who integrated into the Moroccan social and cultural landscape – to life, and The London Syrian Ensemble, a collective of some of Syria’s finest musicians based in the UK.
The full programme will be announced later this month.
