Overview of our work in arts

Covid-19 update: in light of the impact of Covid-19, we have postponed all face to face art programme, and we have proposed alternative approach to stay connected to arts and culture. Through #CultureConnectUs, the British Council’s recent initiative to help people remain connected and get updates on recent arts programmes, news, events, films music and festivals. Through BC Virtual Arts Centre,  you can attend and participate to many arts events on a regular basis and get updates on the arts scene in the region and the UK that you can watch and enjoy at this time.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions on how we can provide advice and support, for more information please contact information@ye.britishcouncil.org

Through our arts work in Yemen we build strong relationships between artists in the UK and their Yemeni counterparts. We collaboratively develop and curate a number of exciting new projects in film and visual arts.

Our programmes respond to the needs and aspirations of our cultural contacts helping them to benefit from the UK’s expertise in the different art forms.
