Islamic Arts Festival is bringing communities together
By: Islamic Arts Society
The Islamic civilization gave the world some of its richest endowments in arts. Today, Muslims have lost their lead in arts and there is need to revive this heritage. The "Islamic Arts Society" aims to revive the rich traditions of arts in Islam by organizing Islamic Arts Festivals throughout Houston.
The art show will enlighten our children, friends and neighbors about the unique place of arts in Islam and also inspire and acknowledge budding local artists. Art is a universal language and helps build bridges between communities.
The event will showcase the art of over 50 artists on 10,000 sq. feet area. Enjoy traditional calligraphy, modern Islamic art, children's activities, photo booth, Halal food trucks and much more. There will be live demonstration of calligraphy, Ebru, henna and painting. Enjoy ethnic food from Food Trucks. Celebrate diversity and meet your neighbors. The event includes a guided tour of the inside of a working mosque. The festival aims to promote cultural understanding between people of all faiths, cultures and background.
The event will be held on 9th & 10th of November 2019 between 10.30 am and 5.30pm. In addition to the art display, there will be tours of the mosque, children's activities and ethnic food to make the event memorable for all those who participate.
The event is free and everyone is welcome!
