Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre (ALC), which is a part of the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), has declared its participation in the 37th Tunis International Book Fair. The fair is being organised by the Tunisian Ministry of Cultural Affairs and is scheduled to take place from April 28 to May 7, 2023.
ALC is taking part in the exhibition to showcase its various publications and reach out to a vast number of readers. Visitors at the fair will be able to purchase the Centre’s books and publications, as they will be made available for sale at their stand.
More than 800 titles will be on display at ALC’s stand, including contemporary publications in literature, the sciences, the humanities, and children’s literature.
A number of classics issued through the Kalima Project for Translation, as well as literary and historical books, travel books, and cultural works related to the Esdarat Project, which aims to transform the intellectual works of both Arab and non-Arab scholars into books, will also be available at their stand.
Dr. Ali bin Tamim, Chairman of the ALC, commented that “our participation at the Tunis International Book Fair reinforces our efforts to open new channels of communication and to achieve our goals at the Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre to promote areas of intellectual creativity, discuss opportunities for cooperation, and build partnerships with various stakeholders in the regional book industry.”
“We strive to participate in specialised exhibitions alongside local, regional, and international publishing houses, which allows us to further promote publications by Arab and international creators issued from our specialised projects, which cover various cultural fields,” the Chairman added.
The Tunis International Book Fair is a yearly cultural event that is organised by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs in the Palais des Expositions in the Tunisian capital. The event includes parallel intellectual and cultural activities. This year’s fair will host 300 publishing houses, displaying nearly 500,000 titles, and Iraq has been selected as the guest of honour for this year’s edition of the exhibition.
