Our objectives and approach

We produce and publish purposeful, professional content; train and engage young professionals; instigate the creation of artistic expressions; and host community building events.

Sharq.Org is a non-profit organisation that works to promote and strengthen peace and pluralism throughout the Arab region and beyond.

We aspire to:

  1. enhance pluralistic thought through the exchange of knowledge and human experience between individuals from diverse backgrounds;
  2. enhance collaborative action through the initiation and development of collectivas comprising diverse individuals with common goals;
  3. enhance collective experience through the organisation of local community initiatives.

We work towards achieving these objectives by:

  1. training young professionals, through workshops, internships and mentoring;
  2. producing purposeful, professional and impactful content in different formats;
  3. publishing, online and in print, providing platforms for sharing & learning;
  4. organising events that enable exchange and development of ideas and expression.

We have over the past ten years developed very strong ties throughout the Arab region and the wider Eastern Mediterranean through a series of initiatives that focus on engagement of citizen journalists, media professionals, civil society actors and individual citizens from diverse backgrounds in different towns and cities.

We have trained over 400 youths and professionals in the skills and techniques required to conduct and document effective interviews and produce credible and socially impactful media reports; have conducted and documented over 300 interviews with people of the Arab region from diverse socio-economic, ethnic and professional backgrounds; have produced and disseminated articles, books, plays, and art exhibits that reflect both individual stories and thematic topics; and have brought people together at dozens of socially and culturally engaging events.
