Shakespeare¹s Globe Exhibition will play host to an
exotic souk showcasing contemporary arts which draw
inspiration from Islamic traditions. Visitors will be
able to see how work is produced and buy from the
stallholders. The Souk itself will be designed by
graduate students and alumni from the Prince¹s School
of Traditional Arts. Throughout the weekend these
artists will work in the UnderGlobe giving an insight
into the living tradition of Islamic art. The students
will demonstrate how the principles of calligraphy,
geometry and islimi or arabesque are applied in
painting, woodwork, ceramic tiling and stone and
plaster carving. Entry to the exhibition will be free
for the whole weekend, so visitors can experience the
souk and enjoy the permanent collection in the
UnderGlobe at the same time.
Throughout the weekend, Khayaal Theatre Company will
bring live performance to the souk. Based on tales and
anecdotes from across the Muslim world, Souk Stories is
a series of short sketches demonstrating and
celebrating the relationship between storytelling and
marketplaces throughout Muslim lands. There will also
be free lectures throughout the weekend.

[ Advert: Everyone Deserves Music at Southwark Rooms ]

Acclaimed DIY-djing night Everyone Deserves Music
returns to the Southwark Rooms in London SE1 on Friday
26th November with a new extended Friday night session.
EDM rejects DJ snobbery by handing music selection
duties over to the crowd. Just turn up with your
favourite tunes, tell us you want to DJ and you'll be
given a playing card. When your card is projected onto
the ceiling of the club, it¹s your turn on the decks.

EDM accepts most formats: CD, MP3, Minidisc and vinyl.
We welcome all musical genres, aiming for an
anything-goes atmosphere where the people, not the
club, decide what the night will sound like.

8pm-1am. Admission £5. Find out more and download a
flyer at: http://www.everyonedeservesmusic.co.uk
