The Bahrain Writers’ Circle (BWC) is once again presenting their unique exhibition “Confluence – Where Words and Images Meet” in collaboration with the Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH) at Harbour Gate. “Confluence” features exhibits from more than 30 teams, writers and artists who have come together to create works of art either inspired by words or art that has inspired words.
This year, the exhibition is hosted under the patronage of Shura Council Member H.E. Dr. Mohammed Ali Al Khuzaai. The inauguration ceremony takes place on Saturday, October 14 at 7 pm at Bahrain Financial Harbour’s Harbour Gate on the 2nd floor and is open to the public.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Alex Craine, CEO of Bahrain Financial Harbour, says: “We are proud to support Bahraini and international artists by providing them event space and a platform to showcase their talent in the Kingdom of Bahrain, enhancing our contribution to society. We have established a series of popular “Art at BFH” solo exhibitions with more than 60 displays over the past six years and are delighted to welcome back the group exhibition “Confluence” for the sixth consecutive time as part of our annual events calendar.”
Saira Ranj, Director of the Bahrain Writers’ Circle (BWC), says: “Words and pictures that invite you to step out of the ordinary, out of your everyday hustle…this unique tradition that has carried on over the years is what is us- the Bahrain Writers’ Circle. Scenes that are universal, experiences that are personal… how the words of a poet and the interpretations of an artist slice through you to reveal so much more about you. Confluence is a project where you find the myth and the magic surrounding you. And yet another tradition we continue is to be based in this unique hub that passionately promotes the cause of the arts and drives communities together socially, commercially and culturally- the Bahrain Financial Harbour. We invite you to visit us and explore facets of this unique venture for yourself.”
Like in previous years, the “Confluence” brochure is produced as a digital version, accessible for everyone. Exhibits will have a QR code shown next to their artworks on display and visitors to Harbour Gate just have to scan the code in order to be directed to a virtual brochure that includes a write-up on the relevant writer/artist teams with bios and contact information. The brochure will also be available for download on the BWC’s website: Bahrain Writers’ Circle – Writers writing (bwcbh.com).
