Al Jazeera Media Network displays publications, offers workshops at Doha International Book Fair
Doha: Al Jazeera Media Network is exhibiting at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center for the 31st edition of the Doha International Book Fair (DIBF).
The Al Jazeera Centre for Studies’ stand features books and special publications. At this significant international event, which runs until January 22, the Al Jazeera Media Institute will provide a number of workshops and activities for guests.
The Al Jazeera Media Institute will host a number of media training courses during the expo, including “The Art of Journalistic Editing,” “Journalistic Article Writing,” “Sports Photography,” “Being a Young Presenter,” and two mobile photography seminars aimed at various age groups.
In addition, the Institute is building an interactive television studio where visitors can practise being a newscaster in front of the camera. It will also give the public the opportunity to work on montages and will include a registration area for the Institute’s courses, as well as information on how to take advantage of the educational services it offers as part of its online learning resource.
The Media Institute’s Journalism Review magazine will be featured at the Al Jazeera stand, as will publications and books on media training and communication.
“Through its participation, the Network aims to showcase its diverse print and digital publications, interactive activities, training programmes, and other services with local and international visitors,” said Acting Executive Director of Global Brand and Communications of Al Jazeera Media Network, Ramzan Alnoimi.
“Al Jazeera also sees the event as a way to fulfil some of its corporate social responsibilities to its viewers,” he added. Nearly 100 publications and excerpts from Al Jazeera’s magazine “Lubab” will be on display at the Al Jazeera Centre for Studies.
Among the topics covered by the books on display will be security in the region, strategy, political studies, as well as economics and media studies. The Center will also include recent releases in these areas. The books and publications are centred on themes that concern the Arab world and its environs.
The Al Jazeera Centre for Studies presented a lecture titled “Qatari-American Cultural Relations: The Strategic Alliance for Human Knowledge” on the first day of the fair.
Mansi, a fictional character established to represent Arab youth and convey their worries about problems, is featured on the Al Jazeera Arabic website. The launch of “Mansi” on social media platforms is just around the corner.
The initiative is a part of the ongoing evolution of aljazeera.net’s visual production, which is available on the network’s official website. Throughout the days of the internationally recognised exhibition, visitors will be able to witness an initial presentation of the project, as well as some of the sit0e’s digital productions on designated video screens.
