Ahlan Wa Salan friends and welcome to the site. For those of you who don’t know, I started Ummah Art as a way to present contemporary Middle Eastern and North African culture to the world. Ummah Art does this by providing a platform for artists and creatives with heritage from the region to share their work. There are many misconceptions about who we are as a people. I believe that the most useful way of unraveling those misconceptions is through the sharing of culture… and at the heart of every culture are the arts.
