MANAMA, Bahrain, August 9, 2018 – 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, Mr. Angus Campbell, CEO of Financial Centre Development Company B.S.C. (c), 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.”

The Harbour Gate property, in its quest to support the arts, is hosting the exhibition in its central concourse on the second floor between the Harbour Towers-East & West. “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 exhibition is located on the 2nd floor at Harbour Gate within the Bahrain Financial Harbour Masterplan. It is open from 11 am until 8 pm from September 16 to 20, 2018 and admission is free.
