Presented by the Barjeel Art Foundation
September 14, 2021

The cultural majlis was founded by Sultan Al Qassemi as a platform to host creatives and intellectuals from across the Arab world. Named after the traditional majlis, which were ‘sitting places’ (mainly within homes) where community members gathered to discuss local events and issues, exchange news, and to receive guests, the cultural majlis has taken place in cities such as New York, Boston, and Georgetown before moving online in the age of COVID-19.
