Diar Forum

Diar Forum is an innovative non-profit group from Diar Consult devoted to the intellectual and cultural pursuit of art, literature and architecture.

The Forum acts as a centre for research and debate on a wide range of issues relating to national urban and environmental development, as well as a cultural awakening for Middle Eastern economies.

The primary aim of the Forum is to promote original thinking and visions related to nation building initiatives.

Objective and Mission

The Diar Forum was conceived as a channel for the creation of a body of cultural, artistic and environmental awareness in an increasingly polarised and detached world.

It works to promote interest and spur debate on a variety of engaging topics relating to the international, regional and Iraqi environments, culture, art and architecture. Members participate in various events, including lectures, round table seminars, presentations, exhibitions, musical concerts and lectures by selected keynote speakers.


Membership applications are invited from prominent members of UAE society, including active and retired professionals, academics, scholars, businessmen and women, thinkers, writers, poets, artists, designers and university students.

Honorary membership is available to non-UAE residents on an invitational basis.
