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.
