JEDDAH (RAHNUMA): Makkah Gov. Prince Khalid Al-Faisal will launch the 5th Makkah Cultural Forum on Monday.
This year’s theme of the forum is “How can we set an example?” The forum aims at involving authorities, institutions, and individuals in the development of cultural identity.
The Makkah Cultural Forum, launched by the governor of the Makkah region four years ago, succeeded in unifying the cultural and humanitarian works of the government and private sectors in the region around a single vision and a positive concept.
It also followed a strategy that prioritizes the importance of building strong Saudi citizens who can improve their homeland and the civilization of their country.
What distinguishes the Makkah Cultural Forum is its adoption of an annual theme from which events, activities, and programs draw their spirit and identity.
Last year’s forum hosted by the King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz International Center for the Arabic Language aimed at finding initiatives that promoted Arabic and its uses.
