The Spirit of Islam: Experiencing Islam Through Calligraphy

Designed as a collaboration between members of local Muslim communities in the lower mainland of British Columbia and staff members of the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, this site was "conceived through the spirit of calligraphy, to frame the aesthetics, spirituality and principals of education relating to the world of Islam." Visitors will want to start by viewing the Flash Reader introduction, which offers a broad overview of the Arabic alphabet, its script, the art of this form of written expression, and contemporary calligraphy. Along with offering detailed information about the practice of calligraphy and its importance within Muslim culture and faith, visitors have the ability to listen to Canadian Muslims speak about their faith, their communities, and their relationships with other groups of fellow Canadians.
