Forthcoming event from Sindbad Sci-Fi who organised such a good panel at the recent Worldcon.

Spurring innovation through Arab Science Fiction

What is the link between technological innovation and artistic imagination? Science Fiction is the ultimate bridge between science and the arts so could exploring this symbiotic relationship enable the next generation to envision an alternative future of the Middle East?

Can inventive forms of art, film and literature help to inspire new waves of scientific development in the Arab world today and beyond?

Samira Ahmed will chair a stellar panel of visionary thinkers who will offer new perspectives on whether nurturing creativity through Science Fiction might be more crucial to our global progress than we might realise.

This event is produced in partnership with Nour Festival of Arts.
