Arab-British Centre

Arab British Centre LogoThe Arab British Centre (ABC) is a registered charity which works to improve the British public’s understanding of the Arab world.  It organises and promotes cultural and artistic events relating to the Arab world, and hosts a regular programme of activities including Arabic calligraphy classes and Arabic language classes. It also houses permanent and temporary collections of contemporary art, has a specialised library open to the public, holds talks on a variety of topics, and recognises individuals and organisations working in similar fields through our annual Arab British Culture & Society Award. The winner of the 2010 Award was the Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival.

Since the Centre was founded in 1977, it has housed and supported other like-minded organisations involved in Arab-British relations in its premises in Gough Square. The Arab British Centre currently supports Caabu, Offscreen Education Programme, Edge of Arabia, Banipal, and Friends of Birzeit University (FoBZU).
