ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Ashkal Alwan and The International Media Network Services for Human Rights (IMNS, Sweden) are happy to announce The Arabic Digital Book Expression Program, focusing on the creation of digital books in Arabic. The Program aims at developing the e-book as a tool that allows the distribution and exchange of uncensored information in Arab information societies, presenting it as an alternative to traditional publishing. The Program will feature two workshops, one on the 1st and 2nd of October and the other on the 10th and 11th of December, with a period of independent work in between. Each workshop will be conducted by IMNS experts, and will offer research strategies and the technicalities behind realizing an Arabic digital book project. Following this training, participants should be sufficient in the use of various program tools at their disposal to create and promote digital books in Arabic; and in communicating innovatively, visually and more efficiently through the multi-layered media platforms the digital book offers. The outcome of the workshops – completed Arabic digital books – will be uploaded onto Ashkal Alwan’s website following the end of the course, January 2015.
