The inaugural Gulf Cultural Forum is set to showcase an array of events, with the Gulf Poetry Evenings standing out as a highlight. This gathering will see the participation of distinguished poets from across the Gulf region, including Hamad Al Ammar representing Saudi Arabia, alongside Badrya Al Badrya, Ashraf Al Asimi, Shamisa Al Numaniyah, and Ibrahim Al Salimi from Oman. Bahrain’s literary scene will be represented by Nouf Nabil, and from the United Arab Emirates, Mohammad Abdul Rahim Ahmad will join the esteemed group.

In addition to these poetic showcases, the forum will also feature a special session dedicated to scholarly research. Dr. Abdullah Al Zahrani, a prominent figure from Saudi Arabia, is slated to present a compelling paper titled “The Power of the Poem’s Survival” at a gathering organized by the Makkah Literary Cultural Club.

The enriching and diverse schedule of the Gulf Cultural Forum extends into the following day, Tuesday the 18th, in the city of Nizwa. This part of the forum will focus on critical discussion and analysis, bringing together various literary critics. A notable presentation by Dr. Abdul Hakim Al Shabrami, titled “The Omen Picture within the Saudi Poetry, through the Corona pandemic as a case study,” is eagerly anticipated. Furthermore, the poetry evening will be graced by the presence of Saudi Arabia’s Hamad Al Ammar, adding to the event’s allure.

The forum, therefore, promises to be a significant cultural event, highlighting the rich literary traditions of the Gulf region and providing a platform for both poetic expression and academic exploration. It aims to celebrate and explore the depth and diversity of Gulf poetry, while also offering insights into the contemporary challenges and themes that shape this vibrant literary landscape.
