Syrian Arts and Culture Festival 2022
January 20, 2022 - February 4, 2022
SACF is a multidisciplinary arts festival showcasing Syria’s vibrant arts and culture. Our curated multi-disciplinary programme of events offers a creative collision of film, music, performance, visual arts and talks. The festival brings together established alongside emerging artists, filmmakers, performers, and musicians to offer London audiences alternative narratives and perspectives on Syria, its people, and culture.
This year’s inaugural festival offers a platform to showcase a rich and exciting body of artistic output and creative expression that sheds light on Syria’s historical, economic, social, political and cultural specificities. It presents a multitude of entry points through which to approach and reflect on present-day Syria, pitting the richness and diversity of Syria, along with its local intricacies, against the uniformity portrayed by the global media and its images. Such an assemblage of works then necessarily points towards the plurality of the people and modes of existence that have constituted the formation of Syria since its independence in 1946.
