From London to Bradford

20 September 2019 | Amal Team

We’ve spent the Summer visiting Amal-supported projects in locations across the UK. Up next are two of our partners presenting their work in London and Bradford.

reACT with P21 Gallery

Amal has partnered with P21 Gallery for ‘reACT’ – an innovative programme created to promote and support emerging artists whose work is dedicated to or inspired by the Arab world. The first finalist for the ‘reACT’ open call is British Sudanese artist Rayan Elnayal with A Magic Realist Afrabia,  a series of digital prints exploring ideas around multicultural identities, hybridity and the third space. See Rayan’s work now at P21 Gallery.

BD Stories with Freedom Studios

Freedom Studios presents two new plays celebrating the stories and cultures of Bradford:

No. 4 by Asma Elbadawi – Fatima and Sarah are best friends playing together on their college basketball team, but the arrival of new girl Wafa from Sudan stirs up secrets and creates new rivalries.

Pashto Thriller by Aina Khan – It’s 1980s Bradford. Hawa Jaan is struggling with having to wear a sari to school and her secret love of Michael Jackson’s music. When Bibi comes to visit from Pakistan, grandmother and granddaughter find more in common than they thought.

See BD Stories from 23 – 26 October at Kala Sangam.
