An evening of poetry and music for imprisoned Qatari poet, Mohammad al-‘Ajami (Ibn al-Dheeb)
In February 2013, an appeal court in Doha, Qatar confirmed a 15 year prison sentence handed down to poet Mohammad al-'Ajami, also known as Ibn al-Dheeb.
Now, on the second anniversary, poets from the UK and around the world come together to recite poetry to commemorate the work of Ibn al-Dheeb. Slam poet John Paul O'Neill - and others - will be joined by Kuwaiti activist and academic, Dr Ghanim al-Najjar, to explore Nabati and modern forms of Arabic poetry and how these cross cultural lines.
Together, we will work to free Ibn al-Dheeb!
