Introducing the Arab British Centre
Introducing the Arab British Centre:
The Arab British Centre is a charitable organisation which works to improve the British public’s understanding of the Arab world.
We organise and promote cultural and artistic events relating to the Arab world, and host a regular programme of activities including Arabic calligraphy classes and Arabic language classes.
We also house permanent and temporary collections of contemporary art, have a specialised library open to the public, hold talks on a variety of topics, and recognise individuals and organisations working in similar fields through our annual Arab British Culture & Society Award. The winner of the 2011 Award was Al Jazeera English.
Since the Centre was founded in 1977, we have housed and subsidised other like-minded organisations involved in Arab-British relations in our premises in Gough Square. The Arab British Centre currently supports the Council for Arab-British Understanding (Caabu), Offscreen Education Programme, Edge of Arabia, Banipal, and Friends of Birzeit University (fobzu).
We are always happy to welcome visitors to the Centre, and/or to add people to our mailing list through which we advertise all sorts of Arab-related cultural and artistic events. We are also open to events suggestions and ideas and do our best to answer any questions you might have relating to Arab world affairs in the UK. If you would like to arrange an appointment, or have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
