Anticipate an enthralling cultural experience as “Unveiling the Vibrancy of Saudi Culture,” a dynamic exhibition, opens its doors in Paris on Saturday, November 11th. Organized by the Literature, Publishing, and Translation Authority, this event promises a comprehensive exploration of Saudi Arabia’s contemporary cultural fabric, continuing until November 10.

This exhibition, a collaborative effort of various cultural sectors under the Ministry of Culture, including heritage, libraries, music, culinary arts, architecture, design, fashion, film, and the Prince Mohammed bin Salman International Center for Arabic Calligraphy, represents a rich blend of creativity, tradition, and innovation.

Central to “Unveiling the Vibrancy of Saudi Culture” is its objective to illuminate the distinct and creative spirit of Saudi culture across various eras. Participants can delve into engaging panel discussions on Saudi literature and translation, discover emerging trends in Saudi fashion, experience a fusion of cultural music, explore the heritage of culinary arts through special publications, learn about global heritage within the Kingdom, observe traditional crafts, understand King Salman’s Urban Charter, partake in poetry evenings with live translation, and engage in film screenings within a vibrant art exhibition.

A highlight of the exhibition is a special photographic showcase by the acclaimed French photographer Terry Mojet, presenting his extraordinary work from southern Saudi Arabia and his photo collections. The exhibition also features sections on manuscripts, heritage items, local fashion, the “Translate” initiative, a philosophy conference, and the “Books and Readers” festival, with numerous Saudi cultural figures present to enhance cultural exchange and portray the Kingdom as a hub of diverse and innovative culture.

This initiative is a strategic effort to promote cultural exchange and dialogue, encouraging Saudi creatives to participate in both local and international cultural forums, thereby presenting the unique aspects of Saudi creative talent on a global stage.

Additionally, the exhibition contributes to the “Arab Poetry Year 2023” through a miniature museum in partnership with the Poetry Academy, highlighting a vital element of Arab heritage. This participation demonstrates the ministry’s dedication to fostering international cultural exchange, in alignment with the strategic objectives of “Saudi Vision 2030.”
