Dubai - Arab Today

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, a leading establishment that seeks to build the potential of the youth and their positive outlook to develop knowledge-led societies, announced the second phase of Writers Exchange between the UAE and Japan, organised in collaboration with Japan Arts and Culture Foundation. Writers Exchange is one of the key categories of MBRF's Dubai International Program for Writing which aims to support young talented writers in the UAE and the Arab world.
The second phase of the category will provide three Emirati writers – Mohsin Suleiman, Al Hanof Mohammed, and Talal Salem – the opportunity to spend nearly three weeks in Japan to learn about the culture of that country and engage with the people there. Based on their experiences, the young writers will author three books in Arabic language which will then be translated to several other languages, including English and Japanese.
Jamal bin Huwaireb, Managing Director of MBRF, said: "The Writers Exchange between the UAE and Japan will contribute significantly to the enrichment of the imagination of the writers from both the countries. The experience of the culture of other countries will enhance their creativity and enable them to produce literary works that speak about realistic situations in a transparent manner, and help support the exchange of cultures and dissemination and transfer of knowledge."
Commending the success of the first phase of Writers Exchange, H.E. Huwaireb said during this phase Writers Exchange hosted four Japanese writers in the UAE enabling them to get closely acquainted with the culture and social life of the people in the UAE in addition to visit some of the most famous tourist attractions.
Writer Mohsin Suleiman said Writers Exchange between the UAE and Japan is an entirely new idea in the region. It will provide new writers with the opportunity to learn about other cultures, and discover different aspects of the lives of people in other countries that can help enrich their imagination as writers.
Poet Al Hanof Mohammed said the visit of Emirati writers to Japan will promote cultural exchanges between the two countries, and enable them to identify details about different nations and civilisations that can inspire them to produce interesting books.
Author Talal Salem said Writers Exchange is a great step forward towards achieving the dream of the writers in UAE and help develop their vision, culture and knowledge at the global level. He pointed out that the human experience is one of the most important benefits of Writers Exchange.
The UAE team's visit to Japan includes bus trips and tours to the cities of Tokyo and Kyoto as well as famous museums and popular heritage sites in that country.
After the completion of the Japan visit, the Writers Exchange will include several countries around the world. Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation has signed several agreements and partnerships with international institutions and entities based on which talented writers from other countries will be enrolled. Each team will stay in the country of the partner team for a specified period of time to enable them to understand the culture and lifestyle of that country and convey their experiences in innovative works of literature.
