Live Interactive Calligraphy Performance!

Aug 17 2018 11:00 - 16:00

P21 Gallery, Chalton Street 21, NW1 1JD London

Join young artist and calligrapher Ghaleb Hawila for a Live interactive calligraphy performance in the heart of London!

As part of "Tints of Resilience" exhibition public programme, the artist will paint a beautiful piece of calligraphy at the entrance of P21 Gallery. He is using an extract of “My Friends” a poem by famous Lebanese poet Elia Abou Madi. The verses express a collective recognition of suffering and the possibility of a collective force of resilience, from Lebanon, to Syria, to the world.

The artist used extracts from the same poem in his collection, "Migrating Letters", displayed at Tints of Resilience exhibition. The collection is a piece done in collaboration with ten children living in a refugee camp in Bekaa, North Lebanon.

“The project made me step out of my workshop and enjoy the work of these children, and then carry it outside the camp”.

You are invited to join Ghaleb Hawila in this parallel performance and actively participate in his calligraphic composition.
