Kuwait’s 41st International Book Fair

Post by Mark

bookfair

I found out about the Kuwait International Book Fair earlier today so I decided to pass by and check it out to see if there were any English books available. The book fair is taking place in halls 5, 6 and 7 of the international fairground and so its pretty huge. 95% of the books are in Arabic which makes it sound like there aren’t many English books but due to the size of the fair, 5% is still a lot. In hall 6 there were two large aisles stretching from one side of the hall all to the way to the other end full of English books ranging from educational and kids books, to novels and more. The amount of people at the fair tonight was insane and parking was crazy so I’d recommend parking far like at hall 8 and then walking over to the book fair. The fair is going to be there until the 26th of this month.

What a ridiculously packed weekend with a ton of things going on. Personally I’ll be popping in out of the Nuqat event this weekend.

Nuqat is this Weekend!

Post by Mark

nuqat

If you haven’t already registered for Nuqat this year then you should hurry up and do so. It’s one of the largest creative events in the region and it’s free to attend. Nuqat includes interactive talks, discussion panels, roundtable sessions, workshops, cultural tours, galleries, live performances and more. There are two ways to register, the first is to download the Nuqat app and registering through that, the second option is by signing up online using this [Link]

For those of you who’ve never attended a Nuqat conference before and not sure what to expect, below are two flashback videos, first one from the 2014 Nuqat conference and the second from last years. It’s a fun and very chill event, you can attend as many talks as you want or just hangout in the open courtyard socializing with friends. You could have burgers all day or take part in a workshop, it’s really up to you and thats one of the things I love about the event. So check out the videos below and then sign up for the event.
