SQCC Hosts Omani Cultural Evening 2019

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

SQCC hosted its annual Omani Cultural Evening on 16 July with a large range of Omani cultural traditions and educational activities for all ages. Visitors from across the metro region attended the event celebrating Omani history and culture. 

The highlight of the evening was the exhibition of "Tolerance, Understanding, Coexistence: Oman's Message of Islam." This touring world-renowned exhibition is at SQCC for the summer. Guests mingled and learned about Oman's millennia-long tradition of religious tolerance and understanding. In addition to the exhibition, famed Omani artist Madny Al Bakry was on hand to discuss a collection of his paintings on display.

In addition to the art exhibitions, the event featured live music, food tasting, Omani coffee, dates and halwa. Guests took home their own piece of Oman with henna and personalized Arabic calligraphy. Participants had the chance to experience Omani culture first hand through creating their own Omani door and learning how to write their names in Arabic.
