It started 40 years ago from the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to be a bridge between civilisations and a gateway into the region. This special event is to affirm that cultures is a bridge that connects people and nations”, said Sheikh Fahim.
