Thousands of Children Enjoy The Opportunity To Get Creative At The 23rd Abu Dhabi International Book Fair

Abu Dhabi, 27 April 2013: Thousands of young readers have been enjoying the widest range of opportunities to get creative at the 23rd Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) by experiencing the full spectrum of fun, educational and cultural events at the Fair's dedicated Creativity Corner.

Excited youngsters have had their minds stimulated in a number of engaging and fascinating ways that have enhanced their creative reading, learned about new discoveries in Scientific Corner, were able to engage their creativity in art and have fun while being educated about the environment and road traffic safety.

Creativity Corner has become a real hot spot for school children at the Fair and is divided into a number of dedicated areas including Scientific Corner; Knowledge Square; Reading, Arts and Crafts, Environment; Be Healthy and Smile and Traffic Awareness.

Dr Najwa Al Hosani,  an Assistant Professor from UAE University, had an audience of schoolgirls spellbound as she showed them easy to follow and understand tips and ideas on how to “Read Creatively”. As she said during her enthusiastic presentation to the students: “When you start to think outside the box you have the potential to be creative geniuses.”

On Sunday 28 April at 11am, Dr Al Hosani will be running another workshop in the Knowledge Square area called “Creator In Our House” where she will discuss how to stimulate creativity in children and the many ways that the human being can demonstrate their creativity.

Young people are also being shown how to have the best smile on their face and get a quick dental check-up and advice on how to keep their teeth strong and healthy every day at the Be Healthy and Smile Corner.

In the reading area youngsters are able to engage with the stories they hear by identifying and playing with toys and other objects and also discover the secrets behind making animated movies for children with Swedish animator Erling Ericsson who will be holding daily workshops throughout the Fair.

Meanwhile every day in the Scientific Corner youngsters are getting the opportunity to find out more about science, mathematics, information technology and literacy in a number of workshops that are aimed at different age groups of children.

Mr Jumaa Abdulla Al Qubaisi, the Director of Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, said: “The Creativity Corner at ADIBF has proved an enormous success and it has been a great joy for everyone to see such enthusiasm, smiles, energy and eagerness to learn from the thousands of children that have already visited the Fair in the first two days.

“There is clearly a real passion for children to get engaged with the world of books and other cultural and educational aspects that are presented to them with fun, humour and great interaction.

“One of our core objectives at the Fair is to stimulate the creativity of children and encourage lifelong reading habits as part of our wider remit to help promote Abu Dhabi as a developing and growing international cultural centre.”

The ADIBF 2013 has been organised by the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) and is open daily from 9am to 10pm every day, except on Friday when it will be open from 4pm to 10pm. Entrance is free.
