SHARJAH: The 18th Sharjah International Narrators Forum will begin on Sept.24 at Expo Centre, Sharjah. This year, the Forum will focus on Fairy Tales, which will serve as an instrumental force for kids, adults and narrators.

Dr Abdulaziz Al Musallam, Chairman of the Sharjah Institute for Heritage, said that over the years, the Forum has served as an important platform to resonate the narrators and storytellers in today’s society. 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. All over the world, poets, authors and writers have been given strategic importance, but through this Forum we aim to set up an infrastructure which will serve as a creative center of excellence for aspiring and established creative professionals,” he said.

With over 28 different activities from varied countries, the Forum will host presentations, round table-discussions that will keep the narrator’s chronicles alive within the society today.

The forum will feature storytellers, narrators and experts from different countries including KSA, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Iraq, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Sudan, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, China, Japan, Thailand, Spain, France, Italy, Holland, Finland, Cameron, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Canada, India and Switzerland.

“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.
