Images of the Middle East

Cultural Festival in Copenhagen and in some Danish cities 12 Aug. - 20 Sept. 2006
Aug 2006

The festival focuses on contemporary culture and the current changes in the Middle East. It continues a series of events in Denmark, aiming to promote awareness of cultures and regions outside of the commonly called "Western" hemisphere, and improve the contacts to other continents. Previous festivals include "Images of Africa" (1991, 1993, and 1996), "Images of the World" (2000), and "Images of Asia" (2003).

With "Identity in the process of change" as its central theme, artists and groups from 22 countries in the Middle East are presented in art exhibitions, film screenings, theatre productions, concerts, dance performances, literary readings, and other events.
