Above is a cover of a Mamluk copy of the Qur’an that dates to the early 14th century. It’s from an excellent site ISLAMIC ARTS & ARCHITECTURE (http://islamic-arts.org) that I found from a link to the Burnley-based LOVE & ETIQUETTE Facebook page. It’s well worth linking to Love & Etiquette (https://www.facebook.com/love.etiquette) as Rizwan Iqbal posts fascinating, beautiful links to sites promoting high quality visual arts, especially relating to Islamic traditions, as well as the great events they promote themselves.
Another page I’m pleased to have posted today is on the Horse + Bamboo website advertising a new post of ARTS TEAM ASSISTANT. This is a 6-month post that is open to a young person (26 or under, and currently on Jobs Seekers allowance) to work with the artists at Horse + Bamboo, including on the Different Moons project. For that reason we would welcome applicants from a South Asian heritage background, although this is not essential.
For more information and how to apply go to the Horse + Bamboo Opportunities page at http://www.horseandbamboo.org/opportunities/
