A weekend collection of hands-on workshops on Islamic art and culture set against the current social backdrop of Islamophobia. These workshops are meant to give those interested the opportunity to get to know Islam and Muslims by providing a safe space within which to explore and experience the Islamic sense of beauty embodied in art, crafts, music, architecture, and more. In addition to the workshops, there will be a film showing of “Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World” followed by a panel discussion between the filmmaker, Michael Wolfe, and Islamic art and architecture experts. The Mevlevi Order of America will also be present to offer a Dhikr (a devotional act) by Mevlevi musicians and dervish turners.

The 34 workshops fall under 7 classifications: Art & Architecture, Arts & Crafts, Calligraphy, Lifestyle & Culture, Music, Writing, and Youth.

You may pick and choose from these 34 workshops, registering for each one separately. You may enroll in as many workshops as your schedule will allow, or in as few as one.

Registration is on a per workshop basis. Tickets to the film showing and the Dhikr are are also sold separately. Registration and tickets are all on http://www.brownpapertickets.com
