Help provide inspiring opportunities to people

We need your help to ensure more people encounter contemporary Arab culture in the future. Giving to our Assisted Ticket Scheme is simple.

Shubbak creates opportunities for people of all ages to engage with Arab artists' creativity and innovation through our award-winning, multi-artform festival and trailblazing participation programme. The 2019 festival reached over 60,000 people in over 50 events across over 40 venues.

Among those audiences were 500 people who we supported to attend events through our Assisted Ticket Scheme. Find out more about how a small donation can make a big difference to someone's life.

Please make a donation to support our Assisted Ticket Scheme through which we connect refugees, migrants, community groups, recently arrived individuals from low-income backgrounds and young people in education to art and artists from South West Asia and North Africa (SWANA) and its diaspora.

In 2019 the Assisted Ticket Scheme enabled over 500 people to come to events at the festival which they would otherwise not have attended.

Free tickets to live and online events, access to Arabic translators, free travel to venues, assisted guidance and pre and post show artist talks are all subsidised by the Assisted Ticket Scheme

Your donation enables us to create new interactions between artists, individuals and communities. With your support we can provide inspiring opportunities for people who are often dealing with an unsettled existence away from family, friends and their places of birth.
