Audiences usually perceive calligraphy when it's complete. The performance of calligraphy is a unique opportunity to see the act of calligraphy while it is done live. The Islamic calligraphy demonstration is about introducing audiences to the means that this calligraphy is done with traditional tools in small scale as well as using traditional-inspired tools in large scale format. After the demonstration there will be questions and answers and then the audiences will have a chance to try traditional tools and experience the calligraphy from up close.       

This program honors the diverse cultures, traditions and histories of Southwest Asian and North African heritage.
