The fair is organised by Saudi Arabia’s Literature, Publishing, and Translation Commission from 8th to 17th December at the Jeddah International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The ALC is highlighting its various cultural projects and initiatives to reach the largest possible audiences, as well as showcasing its publications covering a variety of topics.

The centre is also strengthening relations with local and Arab entities, institutions and publishing houses.

Dr. Ali bin Tamim, Chairman of the ALC, said, “Jeddah International Book Fair 2022 is an important cultural event that has a vital role in driving the inspiring intellectual and social development process in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With its rich cultural programme, the event promotes and advances the publishing industry and the translation sector, offering the public a comprehensive view of the region’s literature and arts sectors.

“The ALC is participating in this year’s fair to highlight our latest projects and initiatives, which will strengthen the position of the Arabic language and promote it as a main pillar of Arab cultural identity. We look forward to enhancing communication with experts and stakeholders in the publishing, translation, and book industries, in an effort to come up with innovative visions that would elevate the cultural scene in the Arab region and expand its scope.”

The ALC’s presence at the Jeddah International Book Fair 2022 is advancing its vision to promote and support culture, as well as introducing the ALC’s projects and publications to the audience. The centre is also promoting Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) and working to attract Saudi universities to participate in the event.

The Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre has presented 450 of its publications for visitors at the Jeddah International Book Fair, along with works from the Kalima Project for Tsranslation, which aims to revive the translation movement in the Arab world, support cultural activity in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, and contribute to the regional and international cultural scenes. The ALC is showcasing the latest addition to the Arabic Poetry Series project, which is the largest encyclopaedia of anthologies in Arabic poetry, including a series of 75 books so far – set to reach 100 books by the end of the year – written by researchers specialised in Arabic poetry. The series aims to revive Arab poetic heritage, a key pillar of Arab identity.
