Nour Festival welcomes submissions for the 2016 programme, celebrating the best of contemporary arts and culture of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) every October and November in venues across the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Nour prides itself on the high quality, contemporary nature of the work it features, and is non-political and non-religious in nature but recognises that both can inspire great art. It offers audiences insights into the diverse make-up of the Middle East and North Africa today, challenging stereotypes of this region and its people through cultural expression.

Nour welcomes artists, creatives and cultural practitioners of these regions, their diaspora communities, and those whose work is inspired by this region of the world, to submit proposals that demonstrate the vision and values of the festival.

How to submit:

Please ensure you read in full the Nour 2016 Submission Brief here, before submitting your proposal using the online submission form here.

Submissions should be as detailed as possible, particularly in the funding requirements. As the Festival’s commissioning resource is limited, proposals that already have funding in place or a strategy for fund-raising will be at an advantage.

The closing date for submissions is 17:00 GMT on Friday 8 April 2016

Submissions will be considered throughout April, during which time the Festival Team may be in touch with you. Proposals will then be shortlisted, with the programme finalised in June. If you have not heard by the end of June, your application has not been successful this year. Given the high volume of submissions, individual feedback on unsuccessful submissions cannot be provided.

If you have any enquiries with your submission, please contact the Nour Festival Organisers – nour@rbkc.gov.uk | 020 7361 3618
