Sharjah: Celebrating the extraordinary vision, talent and pioneering efforts of individuals and entities that have contributed to building the publishing industry in the UAE, the Emirates Publishers Association (EPA) is all set to organize an interactive exhibition as part of its activities to commemorate the UAE’s Golden Jubilee.
Titled ‘Written in Half a Century’, the exhibition will be held from December 12th to 18th at My Space – Aljada, Sharjah. The event will mark the milestone National Day in the Year of the 50th by exibiting the December 2 Front Page of all local newspapers from 1971 – 2021.
Meanwhile, the ‘UAE Publishing Pioneers Gallery’ at the exhibition will present the journey and legacy of the UAE in the creative fields of writing, publishing and media. With fascinating images and informative text displayed in a gallery-style set-up, the exhibition will offer visitors a meaningful insight into the pioneering authors, books, and publishing houses, that have shaped the media and publishing world in the UAE.
The EPA Executive Director further added that the “two galleries will introduce visitors to the drive and ambition of both individuals and institutions that have enhanced the cultural, social and economic development of the country over the decades. As an organization dedicated to upholding the interests of and developing the publishing industry in the UAE, the EPA is excited to showcase the remarkable contributions of the nation’s publishing forerunners in shaping a diverse and inclusive growth-oriented publishing landscape.”
