 اسلامک آرٹس کی افتتاحی تقریب میں سینٹر نے کثیر الجہتی نقطہ نظر اپنایا

دہران، سعودی عرب، 25 جنوری 2023/پی آرنیوزوائر/– کنگ عبدالعزیز سینٹر فار ورلڈ کلچر (اثراء) نے درعیہ بینالی فاؤنڈیشن کے اسلامک آرٹس کے افتتاحی ایڈیشن میں علم کی تلاش اور سائنسی دریافت کا انعقاد کیا۔ یہ سینٹر 23 اپریل 2023 تک جدہ میں بینالی میں منعقد ہونے والے ثقافت اور اسلامی تہذیب کے درمیان ربط کا ازسرنو جائزہ لینے کے لئے ایک کثیر الجہتی نقطہ نظر اختیار کرتا ہے۔

اثراء وہ جگہ ہے جہاں تخیل کو تقویت ملتی ہے، خیالات جنم لیتے ہیں، علم کا اشتراک ہوتا ہے اور ثقافت کا جشن منایا جاتا ہے۔ یہ تمام عناصر مختلف سرگرمیوں کے ذریعے نمائش کے لیے رکھے گئے ہیں، جن میں آرٹ نمائش،  تعلیمی پیشکش اور مکہ سے یثرب تک پیغمبر اسلام صلی اللہ علیہ و آلہ وسلم کی ہجرت پر تحقیق پر مبنی دستاویزی فلم کا ورلڈ پریمیئر شامل ہے۔

نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے نقش پا پر پہلی بار بینالی میں عوامی سطح پر نمائش کی جائے گی۔ بینالی  میں اس موضوع پر دنیا کے معروف ماہرین میں سے ایک ڈاکٹر عبداللہ القادی نے حضور صلی اللہ علیہ و آلہ وسلم کے نقش پا کی دوبارہ تجدید کی ہے۔ یہ اثراء کی ہجرہ نمائش پر مبنی ہے، جس کا مقصد اس واقعہ کے بارے میں لوگوں کے علم کو بڑھانا ہے جس میں اسلام کو ایک اہم مذہب کے طور پر پیش کیا گیا ہے جو ایک عظیم تہذیب کو جنم دے گا۔

اثراء کی نمائش، اسلامی بصری ثقافت کے ازسرنو جائزے پر مبنی ہے جس میں حاضرین کی تحقیق کو مدنظر رکھا گیا ہے تاکہ سعودی معاشرے کی پذیرائی، علم اور اس شعبے کے بارے میں پیشگی تصورات کو بہتر طور پر سمجھا جا سکے۔ اس میں ثقافتی طور پر اہم جز شامل ہیں جن میں ایک تاریخی کسوا (کعبہ کے دروازے کا پردہ)، قدیم قرآن اور مخطوطات اور دیگر نوادرات شامل ہیں۔ یہ نمائش ویڈیوز اور دو وی آر مشاہدات سے مالا مال ہے جو زائرین کو دنیا کی دو مشہور مساجد کی اندرونی معلومات پیش کرتے ہیں۔

اثراء اکیڈمی تخلیق کاروں اور آرٹ کے شوقین افراد کو ان کی صلاحیتوں کو فروغ دینے میں مدد کرنے کے لئے ورکشاپس اور ماسٹر کلاسز کا ایک سلسلہ پیش کرتی ہے – آرٹسٹ پورٹ فولیو: اپنے کام کو ظاہر کرنے کی حکمت عملی؛ آرٹ کو دیکھنے کا فن؛ اور روایتی اسلامی روشنی۔

اثراء میوزیم کی سربراہ فرح ابوشولیح نے کہا کہ “اثراء میوزیم میں ہم ثقافتی تجسس میں اضافہ کرتے ہیں، علم کی تلاش کو فروغ دیتے ہیں، اور خیالات، تخیل اور جدت طرازی کی طاقت کے ذریعے تخلیقی صلاحیتوں کی حوصلہ افزائی کرتے ہیں۔ انہوں نے مزید کہا کہ “ہم بینالی میں مملکت کے ثقافتی ورثے کو حاصل کرنے اور ظاہر کرنے کے لئے جدت طرازی کا استعمال کرتے ہیں۔ ہم اہم تاریخی نوادرات اور منفرد اشیاء کی ایک رینج کو اس انداز میں پیش کرتے ہیں جن سے وہ عالمی سامعین کو متاثر کریں گے، کیونکہ ہمارا کثیر الجہتی نقطہ نظر اسلامی آرٹ کے بارے میں سامعین کی تفہیم کو بڑھانے کے لئے ڈیزائن کیا گیا ہے۔

–  Center takes a multidisciplinary approach at inaugural Islamic arts event

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia, Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) champions knowledge exploration and scientific discovery at the inaugural edition of the Diriyah Biennale Foundation’s Islamic Arts Biennale. The Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to a reexamination of the relationship between culture and Islamic civilization at the biennale, held in Jeddah until April 23, 2023.

Ithra displays 15 pieces of art and artefacts under title of “A Journey of Understanding” at the inaugural Diriyah Islamic Arts Biennale in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Ithra is where imagination is powered, ideas are born, knowledge shared and culture celebrated. All these elements are on display through a range of activities, including an art exhibition, an academic offering and the world premiere of a documentary film based on research into the Prophet Muhammad’s hijrah from Makkah to Yathrib.

In the Footsteps of the Prophet will be screened publicly for the first time at the biennale. In it, Dr. Abdullah Alkadi, one of the world’s leading experts on the topic, retraces the Prophet’s steps. It is based on Ithra’s Hijrah exhibition, aimed at expanding people’s knowledge of the event that saw Islam catapulted to a major religion that would give rise to a great civilization.

Ithra’s exhibition at the biennale, A Journey of Understanding is based on a reevaluation of Islamic visual culture considering audience research to better understand Saudi society’s reception, knowledge and preconceptions of the field. It includes culturally significant items including a historic kiswa (the Kaʼba door curtain), ancient Qur’ans and manuscripts, and other artefacts. The exhibition is enriched by videos and two VR experiences offering visitors walkthroughs inside two of the world’s iconic mosques.

The Ithra Academy presents a series of workshops and masterclasses to support creatives and art enthusiasts in developing their skills – Artist Portfolio: Strategies to Showcase your Work; The Art of Looking at Art; and Traditional Islamic Illumination.

“At Ithra we ignite cultural curiosity, stimulate knowledge exploration, and inspire creativity through the power of ideas, imagination and innovation,” said Farah Abushullaih, Head of Ithra Museum. “We harness innovation to capture and showcase the Kingdom’s cultural heritage at the Biennale. We present a range of significant historical artefacts and unique objects in ways that would appeal to a global audience, while our multidisciplinary approach is designed to elevate audiences’ understanding of Islamic art.”

President Dr. Arif Alvi has emphasized on creating awareness and building confidence among common people particularly farmers’ community to take benefit from the crop insurance policy.

Addressing a ceremony titled “Importance of Crop Insurance in Modern Era” organized by a private media group in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said there is a very little information and knowledge about the concept of crop insurance in Pakistan as compared to the modern world.

The President said keeping in view the massive destruction caused by recent devastating floods in the country, we will have to encourage small farmers to approach insurance companies for insurance of their agriculture produce so that they can be able to get financial assistance of their crop in case of any natural calamity.

Dr Arif Alvi said the state helps downtrodden segments of society if they are hit by calamities, however, the scale of this assistance is very minimal due to financial constraints.

He urged the private companies to come forward and chalk out a mechanism to ensure crop insurance to mitigate the difficulties of the people whose crops were destroyed due to floods and other natural calamities.

Dr Arif Alvi said media is the megaphone, it should come forward and play its role to propagate the effectiveness of crop insurance in order to help farming community.
