Katara to offer host of cultural, educational activities in Ramadan

-

To meet the demand for social activities in Qatar but still hew close to the spirit of the month, Katara has launched a Ramadan program that includes exhibitions, classes and a book bazaar.

The offerings will run through Aug. 30 and include:

  • Four exhibitions: “The Beauty of Words”, an Islamic Arts Exhibition in collaboration with the Sheikh Faissal bin Qassim Al Thani museum; “The Garden of Contemplation,” a large light installation exhibition by artist Simon Heijdens; “A Matter of Time,” a clock sculpture by artist Daniel Weil; and a painting exhibition with recent works by Qatari artists that incorporate Arabic calligraphy.
  • Qur’an classes for children under the age of 17 years old.
  • Educational programs that focus on enhancing creative engagement at the Katara Art Studio. Includes bilingual reading material available at the weekend Book Bazaar.

Definitely a different set of activities from the usual shopping and eating activities that are usually on this month.

Who’s going?
