Tour and workshop: Historic pottery workshop inspired by cuneiform

Jameel Arts Centre holds together a series of tours and workshops for children and teenagers. The workshops feature a guided tour of the galleries and a discovery journey of artworks followed by creative hands-on activities, unique to each visit and led by Jameel Arts Centre’s Learning Coordinator Madeline Abu Nabah.

The tour and workshop feature the current exhibition ‘Hiwa k: do you remember what you are burning?’ at Jameel Arts Centre and focusses on an artwork titled “The Bell Project” showcasing Mesopotamian art symbols and history. Participants are invited to learn about cuneiform (one of the oldest forms of writing known to humankind) through sculpture art.
