Mission & Vision

The Arab British Centre is a cultural organisation which works to further understanding of the Arab world in the United Kingdom. We organise and promote cultural and artistic events, and host a community of like-minded resident organisations at our central London premises.


The Arab British Centre aims to further understanding of the Arab world by promoting its culture, sharing its knowledge and supporting a community of individuals and organisations that work to enhance friendship and collaboration between people of the UK and the Arab world.


Our vision is to be the national centre for the promotion of Arab culture in the United Kingdom, a gateway to the Arab world and a vital hub where individuals and organisations work alongside each other in a spirit of friendship and collaboration.


We encourage mutual understanding and dialogue through arts and cultural exchange

We share Arab culture in all its diversity

We bring communities together and support international collaboration through our network of partners, residents and associate resident organisations.
