Maeve O’Sullivan continues her exploration of Dubai Lynx 2015 as she delves into the major themes of the creative festival’s Arabic programme.
I learned an Arabic word yesterday: ‘yatafakkaroun’. It translates in English to ‘thinking and questioning’ or critical thinking. Language and its impact on culture and communication was a recurring topic at the series of sessions presented in Arabic at Dubai Lynx. The sessions aimed to explore creative themes and challenges for the region – a good complement to the subjects covered on the main stage.
