General Information
I'm the organiser of the Arabic Culture Meetup in Dublin and have one assistant. In the past I had been involved in many charities in Yemen and intercultural events for example: "Home Away From Home", an informative organisation for foreign women/men married to Yemenis and living in Yemen through social activities. In Ireland I volunteered in several festivals and fundraising my own projects and also got donations, the rest is my own funds and efforts. Two recent projects are "Art from the Land of Queen Sheba" for which I set up a group called "The Yemen Connection", friends of my parents who worked for Concern in Yemen. Another event was "Arabesque Night", Presenting 2 Arabic bands, belly dancers and world music DJ. Both were a great success last September 2012 at the Ranelagh Arts Festival.
Mission and Objectives

A self sustaining organisation for Arab, non-Arab, Irish and international people of all ages to promote Arabic culture and diversity in Irish society.
My objective is to create a hub that offers a place for intercultural exchange between the Irish, Arab and the international community as a whole.

Main Projects / Activities

Main activities are in the arts and culture, to give information and reinforce good relations through social events. For example: art exhibitions, dinners, talks and tours at The Chester Beatty Library, lectures in Trinity College, Arabic music events, social Arabic language meetups for those who are learning or need to practice. I show Middle-eastern, Arabic and Asian films.
Through the Arabic Culture Meetup 52 events have been scheduled so far since September 2012 when I became the organiser. Today there are 108 members of mixed nationality including Egyptian, Iraqi, Syrian, Moroccan, Jordanian, Palestinian, Yemeni, Iranian, Turkish, French, British, Spanish, Hungarian and of course a lot are Irish. I have made sure to have at least one meetup a week, and sometimes there could be 3 hence I invited 2 members to assist. I hope to eventually have an Arabic cultural hub in Dublin, a place where people can meet or get information.

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?

I have many dependable contacts in Yemen, and some in Egypt whom I would be able to ask for help and whom are in positions to open more networks and get information from. Last September, the Froebel College of Education opened opportunity for the artists from Yemen to an exchange of dialogue with the students on diversity and the woman's place in Yemeni society. There were a couple of art workshops and a food forum introducing some Yemeni dishes and discussion about traditions. The outcome was incredible, the students, teachers and college were very impressed and praised the artists and The Yemen Connection. I endevour to continue with such projects which will enlighten everyone on each others' cultures and bring about good relations between the East and West.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?

I am excited to have learned about the ALF projects and initiatives encouraging dialogue and integration in Europe and the Mediterranean and believe it is the network I've been looking for to help me develop my ideas into reality by way of contacts and some funding when necessary.
All my projects focused on show casing Arabian arts and culture to the Irish and international audiences living in Ireland in the hope that people will change their perception of the Arabs.
Although I have had some assistance, it has been difficult trying to create and organise such events by my self and I hope by joining the ALF I'll be able to continue achieving goals.

General Information
Askeaton Contemporary Arts is organised by a director/curator, assisted by a curatorial assistant. In Askeaton the project is supported by a local advisory board, Askeaton Civic Trust, Askeaton Community Council and many local businesses and individuals. Nationally, funding has been obtained from the Arts Council, Create, Limerick County Council and Shannon Development. Other recent partners have included Independent Curators International, New York. Programme funding in 2012 amounted to 42,000 euro. In 2012 our programme consists of five artist commissions culminating in a resulting exhibition and catalogue, one long term artist residency, and our seventh annual summer residency programme with five Irish and international artists, accompanied by a public open day and various events.
Mission and Objectives

Founded in 2006, Askeaton Contemporary Arts aims to promote and provide contemporary visual art to the locale of Askeaton, County Limerick. By developing community involvement and understanding of how art might be produced and experienced in this locality, ACA aims to open up new possibilities of how contemporary art might operate as a socially-engaged and critically-led entity in the region, while concurrently supporting the production of new artists’ projects. Askeaton Contemporary Arts has introduced the work of artists from Argentina, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Mexico, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Northern Ireland and Ireland to Askeaton. Over forty Irish and international artists have worked in the town in the last seven years.

Main Projects / Activities

Residencies, commissions and exhibition projects are frequently organised, often taking the everyday life of Askeaton as a subject. Local interaction with the artists and artworks are not only as audience, often they are actively implicated into the development of the artwork itself through their assistance or participation. Furthermore, with no ‘white-cube’ spaces in Askeaton, artists work in various venues throughout the town, and are incorporated into the everyday life of the locale. As a signifier of the quality of this initiative, subsequent projects have been exhibited throughout Ireland and Europe, including the 2011 Istanbul Biennial. For a full archive of projects produced please consult www.askeatonarts.com

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?

Askeaton Contemporary Arts' ethos and programming presents something not overtly represented in the Irish network: a developed understanding of regional programming, community-based social dialogue through interaction with international contemporary art. We aim to facilitate intercultural understanding with people living outside the mainstream urban center through this form of dialogue.This is built on the belief that art can offer alternative viewpoints and genuine social change to its locale, and ACA has endeavoured to work with these goals. This form of engagement with contemporary art focuses on working within the existing dynamics of a small town, intending to bring forward the diverse layers of daily life and create a rich framework for subjective encounters. The investigations led by artists here ultimately leads to a de-mystication of the artistic process, and allows for a frank exchange of values between the regional and international, and between local and universal values. We believe these are aspects that can enrich the Irish Network.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?

Askeaton Contemporary Arts are interested in how art might be produced and experienced in this locality, how art might operate outside a city environment. Artists from throughout the world have worked here, with a variety of projects facilitated and produced in direct relationship to the community of the town. We treat this as a platform for developing the role of contemporary art as a socially-engaged and critically-led medium. We believe that joining the ALF network will allow our organisation to develop further and crucial understanding of contemporary and progressive idioms of cultural diversity.
