The third Shubbak festival of contemporary Arab culture will be held across London from 11?26 July 2015. The programme is currently being developed by Shubbak’s Artistic Director Eckhard Thiemann in partnership with a number of venues. Shubbak is a curated festival and participation is normally by invitation only.

However, we welcome expressions of interest from Arab artists, and organisations that work with Arab artists, who would like to explore with us their ideas and, eventually, their project proposals for possible inclusion in Shubbak 2015. We would especially like to hear from artists and organisations based in the Arab region.

There are no deadlines and you can email an expression of interest at any time to Eckhard Thiemann,

Please note that we will not be able to respond to all requests. We will only contact you if we would like to discuss your proposal in greater detail. See the PDF documents below for further information.
