Allamah Tabatabai’s Award
The Islamic Centre of England is pleased to launch the inaugural Allamah Tabatabai’s Award (ATAward), initiated to acknowledge and award hard working students. ATAward aims to provide students with inspirational leadership, guidance and support to improve their own future prospects and their communities. Allamah Tabatab’i Award (ATAward) has been created to support young (GCSE & A-level) students who have succeeded in achieving the highest grades in their studies but are in need of guidance to take their next step into higher education.
Considering the positive impact of awarding and recognising the hard work of students, it is necessary to systematically identify, praise and nurture academically gifted students within our community. ATAward would like to establish a mechanism for students to be seen by their community, encouraging youths to advance their learning in accordance with the emphasis placed by Islam on education.
GCSE and A-level students are presented prestigious awards and prizes in an annual Awards Ceremony for their high achievements. In addition, a comprehensive Mentoring scheme is in place to provide personalised guidance to the winners striving for a successful future.

El Hadji Sy: Painting, Performance, Politics
In 1985, the Weltkulturen Museum commissioned artist and curator El Hadji Sy (born 1954 in Dakar, Senegal) to assemble a new group of works of contemporary art from his homeland, to initiate a long-term relationship between the two cities. Thirty years later, the museum presents a retrospective of Sy’s career as a painter and cultural activist. The exhibition combines Sy’s installations and paintings-sometimes executed with his bare feet or produced on such unusual surfaces as industrial rice sacking or synthetic kite silk-with his selection of ethnographic objects and artworks by colleagues from Senegal. It includes loans from international private collections in addition to works from the museum’s own collections.
Venue: Weltkulturen Museum, Schaumainkai 29, 60594 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Fee: € 7
