The Dhow Exhibition
16th September 2010 – December 2010
Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter
The MARES Project will be organizing the Dhow Exhibition that will be launched in September 2010 during the Red Sea V Conference, celebrating the first ten years of the Red Sea Studies.
The exhibition will take place at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies (IAIS), University of Exeter, which is a beautifully located and light building of a distinctive architectural style evocative of the Middle East region. The exhibition will include an active community involvement component, such as a range of visits and talks, bringing the people of the South West England together to explore the world of dhows. We would like to make this event successful and staying in visitors’ memories for a long time, possibly even encouraging them to discover themselves some of the wonders of the world of dhows during their travels.
We are currently collecting old photographs, paintings and other representations of dhows, in particular those related to both African and Arabian costs of the Red Sea (i.e. Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Eritrea, Sudan, and Djibouti). We are also looking for people who have or are in the process of making dhow models of the Red Sea area or are in possession of marine paintings depicting dhows.
We are especially interested in exhibiting ‘hidden treasures’, i.e. items that were never before presented to wider public.
Our long term plan is to have all the exhibits digitised and accessible to the general public online by 2012/2013.
For an informal talk about the Dhows Exhibition 2010 please contact Beata Faracik, The MARES Project Research Support Officer, either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on +44 (0) 1392 72 52 51.
