22 is the closing project of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2021. For the last four months LAAF has invited artists and projects from the UK and internationally that highlight the complexities and disproportionate impacts that the climate crisis is having on the countries and communities in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Every day between 1 – 14 November 2021 we will release new rapid response pieces capturing the hopes and fears of a generation of Arab artists and activists, to coincide with the conversations being held by world leaders at COP26 in Glasgow.
Together these pieces will form a creative anthology which will serve as a time capsule of this crucial moment in history, providing insight into the perceptions and preoccupations of those living or with heritage in the Arab world.
