In conjunction with the exhibition Golnaz Fathi: Contemplations, we were honoured to be invited by Sundaram Tagore Gallery to host an Arabic calligraphy workshop. Situated in a hilly area full of colonial buildings, Gillman Barracks is indeed a hidden unique area in Singapore. The atmosphere is certainly a cosy, serene, old-school space, frozen from the bustling energy just outside its 3 km radius.
Regardless of language, race and religion, we always welcome everyone to our Khat (Arabic Calligraphy) Workshops to experience the art of classical Arabic calligraphy. The pen, ink and paper, are simple instruments that have built civilisations through time. To share these through our workshops, it is full of pleasurable moments where we exchange ideas and thoughts with people of different culture, races, citizens and walks of life. It is exciting to be with everyone exchanging energies to refresh and rejuvenate the values of humanity within.
We hope you enjoy these photos. We hope through such cultural explorations, we could cultivate a beautiful form of peace and reinstate a harmonious value of humanity in all of us.
