On Friday 16 of November 2018, the Cooperation and Cultural Action Department of the French Embassy and the Alliance Française organized for the first time a Poetry Night called "Wake Up Poets". The event initiated by the Institute of the Arab World in Paris in 2015, took place at the Alliance Française. It is now an international meeting and Manama has been added to the list of cities such as Rabat, Jeddah, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Tunis.
Poets of all nationalities and all ages were able to express themselves in three languages (French, Arabic and English) accompanied by talented musicians, in front of a large and enthusiastic audience, during this emotional and sincere evening.
