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
