Sufism Arts and Culture Festival Open Day!
Be part of the team to deliver a new exciting festival exploring the art and culture of Sufism. There are a wide range of roles available on the lead up and during the event. You are invited to the open day Sunday 21st April 11am. You can drop in to this event and find out more about each role and what is involved.
The open day will be held at Andalus, New City Road, Glasgow G4 9PA.
A day-long festival spread across the Tramway and the Hidden Gardens, with accompanying events across the surrounding areas, the Sufi Festival will open a door into the art and culture of Sufism, from music, poetry and theatre, to art and craft, storytelling, and ritual ceremonies of devotion. There will also be a host of talks by leading academics and Sufi scholars about the history, ideas, and relevance of Sufism in the world today, and exhibitions of Islamic artifacts. The festival will be held on Sunday 28th July.
There will be workshops for festival-goers to get hands-on in the craft of Sufi art, poetry and calligraphy. Spellbinding tales will be recounted by storytellers, poets will read verse to transport the soul, and untold spiritual dimensions of sound will be uncovered by world-class musicians, while guests will be treated to a bazaar selling traditional handicrafts and of course, food and drink from across the Islamic world.
This is a great role for someone keen to gain experience in the event planning, the arts sector or event just to enjoy something different. You will have the opportunity to watch some of the amazing performances on the day.
