Literary Conversations Across Borders
“Conversations across cultures strengthens our bonds and brings greater appreciation of the topics that affect us in the world today, recognising the common concerns, joys and sorrows that affect us all, no matter who we are.” Isobel Abulhoul, CEO and Trustee of the Emirates Literature Foundation
A new initiative to promote international cultural understanding through the power of books and words has been launched by the Emirates Literature Foundation, with the co-operation of the UAE Office of Public and Cultural Diplomacy.
Called ‘Literary Conversations Across Borders’, the project will use a digital platform to host Emirati writers and commentators in live discussions with high profile experts from around the world on a variety of critical topics.
There will be eight sessions in this first series.
The sessions are free to watch but pre-registration is required. After the event the session will be hosted on the Emirates Literature Foundation YouTube channel.
