Posted on

The BA Writing and Scripts Center takes part in the seventh round of Cairo International Forum for Arabic Calligraphy, organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture (Cultural Development Fund), from 6 to 9 June 2022, under the title “Pioneers and Reformers in One Hundred Years: 1922 – 2022.” The BA participation included a display of a collection of Arabic calligraphy plates by Sheikh Mohamed Abdel Rahman, Mr. Kamel Ibrahim, and Mr. Khodeir Al-Portsaidy. The plates are part of the original collection held by the BA Exhibitions Department in its attempt to document the art of contemporary Arabic calligraphy.

Two research papers were presented by the BA Writing and Scripts Center during a seminar held as part of the Forum: “The History of King Fouad’s Quran” and “The Philosophy of Arabic Calligraphy and Sufism: Formation, Thought, and Practice."
