My name is Rafika Rajab, and I set up Arabesque Events many, many years ago as a place for people from different cultures to meet.
Ireland has become an open and diverse ethnic society, and Arabesque Events aims to bring East & West together through the sharing of traditions and culture, such as art, theatre, music , film, food and language. An environment that will create this is encouraged by presenting both traditions, Middle Eastern & Irish through a series of events from a new generation of Irish, both traditional Irish and the new Irish with Eastern roots. It is an ideal platform to showcase different talents, connecting them to new audiences and allowing each person to express their uniqueness with a community that celebrates ethnicity in Dublin. Understanding the importance of encouraging integration and interaction of all cultures involved is paramount.
