Kalimat is run by a team of volunteers that work tirelessly every day to produce a high-quality, contemporary and internationally distributed print publication. By supporting Kalimat, you are helping us continue our work in providing an open platform for Arabs across the region and the diaspora to share their stories and work across various sectors. Learn more about becoming a proponent of culture and supporting open media and expression.
Kalimat is excited to announce the launch of Décor, a project aimed at showcasing the works of Arab artists, designers and illustrators worldwide through a series of user-submitted wallpapers.
Taking the form of desktop, phone and tablet wallpapers, Décor is another platform for Arab creatives to share their ideas and work. We openly invite Arab artists, designers and illustrators from anywhere to submit works - we'll leave the theme and direction to you.
The wallpapers will be posted on the Kalimat website for free download with the name of the artist/designer/illustrator and a link to their website. The Editorial Team then selects which work will feature in our print edition. Find out more here.
