About

Nour Festival of Arts is rapidly becoming one of Europe's most significant annual showcases of contemporary arts and culture from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The festival takes place at more than 20 venues across Kensington and Chelsea.

Nour, which means light or illumination in many Middle Eastern languages, challenges preconceptions, sparks debate and provides insight into culture from across the MENA region.

The festival welcomes established artists and emerging talent to some of the foremost cultural institutions in the UK, creating a diverse programme that encompasses current affairs, cuisine, contemporary visual arts, film, music, poetry and performance

A highlight in 2013 is the partnership with the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha which brings the remarkable exhibition Ferozkoh: Tradition and Continuity in Afghan Art to London's Leighton House Museum.
