Locale is a Sudanese space for the development, support and cultivation of home grown effort with the aim of empowering the Sudanese identity and preserving the culture with a present-time attitude intended to aid in the incorporation of heritage into our current contemporary lifestyles. Locale’s mission as a cultural influencer is to advocate local initiatives and challenge the advancing creative community by promoting creative exploration.
Through initiating social art programs and creating a collaborative dynamic within community-based projects around the country, Locale aims to blur social boundaries and provide opportunities for cultural and creative innovation. Locale aims to become a local platform that encourages cross-fertilization, supports and gathers an empowered creative community. Locale refines the image of home and ensures that the Sudanese fingerprint is not discarded or forgotten.
Locale collaborated with NWN to curate Eleven Poems , a book of 11 poems by 11 Sudanese poets.
The collection features both English and Arabic poetry that was performed at the Nas with Notepads monthly events.
