SHARJAH, 8th March, 2018 (WAM) — UTURN, an online entertainment network in Arabic video content, will be holding a series of interactive sessions and workshops at this year’s International Government Communication Forum, IGCF, taking place on 28th-29th March at Expo Centre Sharjah.
The 7th edition of IGCF, organised by the International Government Communication Centre, IGCC, will provide an opportunity for delegates to experience how much of an impact social media can have on a community, especially through its youth.
Participants in IGCF will be able to meet the network’s teams, actors, anchors and producers throughout the event, where they can gain insights into the role of social media in forming the culture and outlook of future generations.
UTURN’s programmes are celebrated for harnessing some of the Middle East’s most creative and talented young people to present quality content, often using comedy and satire to reflect changes and developments in local communities. The network features five key channels: entertainment, gaming, lifestyle, kids and vlogging.
Jawaher Al Naqbi, Manager of IGCC, said, “Global communication has undergone rapid, fundamental changes in recent years, largely thanks to the innovation and creativity of young people around the world. UTURN is a unique example, having made an enormous Arabic contribution.
Launched as a YouTube channel in Jeddah, KSA in 2010, UTURN is a pioneering Arabic entertainment network, which produces quality creative programmes to support young people and promote Arab programmes worldwide. It reflects the growing influence and opinions of young people on social issues and provides a platform for their views.
