This year, the Sharjah International Narrators Forum looks to interact and share experiences of some of the world’s renowned narrators and appreciate their skills and unique ability to create emotions.

“Storytelling is the core of Arabic culture which has been widely accepted even by the global audience.

“Heritage and culture form an important element of UAE and Sharjah in particular. While the Forum will serve as a strategic platform to acknowledge and recognise the narrators and storytellers unique skills, it will also tell the tale of heritage in Sharjah and the story of the land and its people delivered by word, melody, popular knowledge and tradition,” he added.
