Gulan: Promoting Kurdish Culture

Gulan promotes what is best in the culture of the Kurdish people. Its objective is to help sustain the sense of Kurdish identity and to preserve the heritage of Kurdistan for the benefit of people of all cultures and identities. It respects all people, cultures and faiths.

In addition to organising Kurdish cultural events, Gulan is researching and documenting the traditional textiles, costume and jewellery of the Kurdish people. It provides information about the Kurds and Kurdistan and is building a photographic archive.

Gulan is a UK registered charity formed in 2008. It has no political or religious agenda, and does not accept funds from sources which wish to advance a particular political or religious aim through their gift.
