Light from the East: Middle Eastern Art Now Free

Join Byre World for a multimedia celebration of Middle Eastern art in honour of Catherine Cobham (former Head of the Arabic and Persian Department).

Renowned Syrian poet Nouri al-Jarrah will read from his latest work The Stone Serpent, an epic poem that revives an ancient love story between a Syrian man and a Celtic woman. Catherine Cobham will read from her translation of the poem. The event will include Iranian music, song and poetry, Tunisia-inspired paintings, and reflections on Arabic literature.

Free, but please book your tickets on the Byre Theatre website.
