Location

Situation

1) To reach those members of the community of Liverpool who would not ordinarily engage in the arts, young people in particular; using arts participation as a vehicle to the broaden horizons and aspirations of individuals and communities, and to increase the public's knowledge and understanding of Arabic arts and culture - leading to stronger and more cohesive communities. 2) To bring the work of Mohammed Ali to Liverpool for the first time. 3) To raise the awareness and profile of the Festival

Solution

1) The project will bring groups of young people together from different backgrounds in active participation to create a shared vision and will educate the young people in different faiths, religions and beliefs through an inclusive, creative and fun experience. 2) Ali will create up to 2 large scale permanent murals in the Liverpool city region. 3) The public art project will reach audiences across the socio-econonic divides and will help to raise the awareness and to profile the Festival.
