New York Arab Festival (NYAF) was established in 2022 to celebrate Arab American Heritage Month, and to fight the erasure of Arab and Arab American identities from New York City, a place that Arabs have called home for over three centuries. NYAF is a multidisciplinary festival of art, culture, design, food, philosophy, and intersecting industries. It programs artists from the entire Arabic-speaking region, the Arab diaspora, and Arab American artists, particularly artists working and living in New York City. Founded by Arab, American and Arab American artists, curators and cultural producers Adham Hafez, Adam Kucharski, Cindy Sibilsky, Marwa Seoudi and partners.
