Art Exhibition “Confluence – Where Words and Images Meet”
September 16 to 20, 2018
Harbour Gate, Bahrain Financial Harbour, Bahrain
A unique melding of words and art is the subject of the Bahrain Writers’ Circle’s (BWC) first exhibition “Confluence – Where Words and Images Meet” to be held from September 16 to 20, 2018 at Harbour Gate, Bahrain Financial Harbour.
Eighteen teams of writers and artists have come together to create around 30 works of art either inspired by words, or art that has inspired words. Akram Miknas, President of Promoseven Holdings, inaugurates the event on September 15 at 6.30 pm at Harbour Gate. He says: “I am pleased to be associated with this expression of culture and look forward to seeing many more such initiatives from the Bahrain Writers’ Circle.” Speaking on the occasion, Angus Campbell, CEO BFH Holding Company, says: “It is part of the vision of Harbour Gate to include art exhibitions, such as this and to encourage visitors to discover this wonderful artistic space in the heart of the downtown.” Harbour Gate management, in their quest to support the arts, hosts the exhibition in the central concourse between the two towers on the second floor. “We are truly grateful for the offer of this prestigious space and all the support that the Harbour Gate team has provided us,” says Rohini Sunderam, Director and Founding Member of the Bahrain Writers’ Circle (BWC). She adds that she is also indebted to Akram Miknas, for sponsoring the exhibition brochure and inaugurating the event.

The Bahrain Writers’ Circle (BWC) is a volunteer group established in 2011. It welcomes writers at all stages of their writing lives and aims to create an encouraging environment in which to nurture creativity, improve the craft of writing, and provide an opportunity to network with other writers. The BWC has two sub-groups, The Second Circle – a poetry group and the Creative Writers’ Workshops – which explores the craft of writing. A monthly meeting on the business of writing and publishing takes place on the second Monday of every month. The BWC is now probably the biggest group of international and local writers in Bahrain.
