Amal at Southbank Centre

06 March 2017 | Amal Team

Of all the places we love in the UK, Southbank Centre is definitely one of our favourites. As the country’s largest arts venue, it’s a place where people experience world-class art and culture that stimulates, inspires and educates.

That’s why we’re so pleased to be partnering with them this year across some of their best loved festivals – WOW – Women of the World, Alchemy and Belief and Beyond Belief. 

The partnership kicks off this week with WOW from Tuesday 7th – Sunday 12th March 2017. Since 2010, WOW has been an annual flagship event of Southbank Centre that has grown into a global movement, with international festivals reaching over one million people across five continents, and growing year on year.

During WOW London we will be supporting a number of events addressing themes of interest to Amal including Fatima Manji in conversation with Nosheen Iqbal, Istanbul: Proud History, Fearful Future? with Elif Shafak and Bethany Hughes, and Smashing the Stained Glass Ceiling Discussion Group hosted by the Christian Muslim Forum.

Follow the conversation on Twitter and Instagram, and join in via the hashtag #AmalatSouthbank
