JEDDAH: The Saudi Arabian Society for Culture and Arts (SASCA) organized a womens poetry night on Wednesday at its Jeddah headquarters in cooperation with the General Authority for Culture (GAC).
The poetry night, moderated by poet Dalal Radi, was attended by prominent Saudi poets who recited some of their famous works, notably Fatima Al-Ghamdi, Nadia Al-Maliki named “Khashaf,” and Khadija Al-Sayed.
Dr. Juman Al-Ghamdi, supervisor of the Cultural Forums Committee at the Society, stressed that the poetry night, which saw the participation of a number of women Saudi poets, differed from previous evenings. “It is the first womens poetry night that is attended by a large turnout of connoisseurs of culture and arts.”
Mohammed Al-Sabeeh, director of SASCA in Jeddah, highlighted the attention accorded by SASCA to poetry and poets by organizing several poetry nights.
“Poetry hones and promotes positive habits within the society, as it reveals and highlights many of the morals and ethics. Poetry is the language vessel and a fundamental subject for teaching the language and developing the eloquence aptitude,” he said.
Al-Sabeeh thanked the GAC for holding the event, as also to the poets and the audience for participating in the event.
