DOHA international book fair
The people of Qatar are passionate about reading and the pursuit of knowledge, and they have expressed this through participating in ‘Qatar Picks’, choosing their favorite and explaining why it affected their lives. From ‘Editors Pick’ to ‘Reader’s Choice’, what better recommendations can you get than those from your friends, family and peers? Passersby were welcome to share books, contributing to the experience or to peruse the choices of others in the community.
Life sized books with stories inspired by Alice in Wonderland and The Adventures of Sindibad. Children could read the pages and identify the missing characters, then enter into the pages to pose with the character.
The Imaginative Journey
In 2018, the National Reading Campaign collaborated with local artists to create original artworks that illustrated the importance of reading. The Imaginative Journey Exhibition was based on the idea that reading takes you places that cannotbe reached by trains, cars, or even spaceships. The exhibition enthralled visitors attending the DIBF by showing how books can magically transport the human mind away from written words to a whole new fictional universe, where the spirit of imagination and exploration are unleashed.
