Artists, actors, and writers from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will take part in the latest installment of an initiative set up to provide a sense of cultural community during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Arab British Centre and MENA Arts UK will collaborate to deliver a series of online talks by established creators that will give the public a chance to ask them questions directly, and the creators an opportunity to reflect on their work during the pandemic.
It will begin on Friday, Feb. 5 when Sally El-Hosaini, a director who has won awards for her film “My Brother The Devil” at London, Berlin and Sundance film festivals, will speak to audiences via Zoom.
In the following weeks, award-winning writers and actors, including BAFTA winner Amir El-Masry, will also take part in the program.
