ARTISTS / IDEAS / NOW brings together leading artists, creatives and activists to address the most pressing and complex conversations of this moment. In 2022, it becomes a podcast series, inviting Arab artists to respond to the LAAF festival theme, نقطة وصل – Nuqtat Wasl – A Point of Connection.


Liverpool Arab Arts Festival

The UK's premiere Arab arts and culture festival, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF) works all year round to celebrate art and artists from across the Arab world. 

ARTISTS | IDEAS | NOW is an artist-led conversation, established in 2020 and deisgned to bring artists into conversations reflecting on some of the biggest issues affecting the world today.

ARTISTS | IDEAS | NOW is created online allowing artists based across the globe, some of who have often been forcibly displaced or who are banned from travel, to come together. Now in its third year running, the conversations will take the form of a podcast.

ARTISTS ON THE FRONTLINE is a creative space for radical artists working at the forefront of social and political change. Whether through the latest digital technology, on the streets, or by inventing new prototypes, our work creatively responds to the multiple crises the world is facing.
