ABOUT

Nour Magazine is an independent online platform that sheds light on the beauty of the Middle East and North Africa.

We publish articles, art galleries, and photography projects, feature a growing media collection and host live events — all with the goal of providing an empowering and authentic MENA cultural experience. 
Nour Magazine is guided by three core principles: represent, empower, and portray. Under a global gaze, MENA’s true beauty is often overshadowed by conflict and political bias. Nour offers a corrective MENA narrative: highlighting the region’s vibrant and dynamic art and cultures, while harnessing a growing community of contributors and audience members from within MENA and around the world.  
Today, Nour Magazine is composed of a talented international team of curators, designers, web developers and writers.
