The conclusion of the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, which is commemorating 20 years since its inaugural event, drew sizable numbers.
For the first time since 2019, when roughly 25,000 people attended the event, performances were hosted in Sefton Park.
Arab populations have lived in the city ever since it became a significant port in modern-day Britain.
Holding the event after the epidemic “gives so much pleasure,” according to festival chairperson Afrah Qassim.
“Our subject this year is all about how we construct a bridge, linking language and culture,” Ms. Qassim continued.
It has to do with how we communicate and figure out what we have in common.
According to the organizers, it is thought that trade brought the first Arab populations to Liverpool from Yemen and Somalia.
Recently, more people have relocated as a result of the conflicts in Sudan, Syria, and Iraq.
The 10-day event is partially financed by Liverpool City Council and Arts Council England.
