Liverpool Arab Arts Festival at Bluecoat

Liverpool Arab Arts Festival grew from a collaboration between Bluecoat and Liverpool Yemeni Arabic Club in 1998, developing through an ‘Arab Weekender’ in 2000, and finally a partnership in 2002, when the first LAAF was launched at St George’s Hall. The organisation has its office at Bluecoat.
