Arabic calligraphy with a difference

calligraphy symposium—writing 2019

We are delighted to announce our next international symposium will be held in the beautiful city of Vienna in Austria from Monday 15th to Friday 19th July 2019.

The Global Calligraphy Vienna (GCV) and International Research Centre for Calligraphy (IRCC, Sunderland, UK) are collaborating jointly to deliver this symposium to you.

The theme this year is the exploration of the ‘linear graphic’ or the gestures of lines. We have arranged a team of renowned calligraphers and artists.

Sigrid Artmann, Ewan Clayton, Denise Lach, Yves Leterme, Abd A. Masoud

We have also devised a range of workshops that would enlighten your approach to calligraphy. No matter what your skill level or experiences are, each workshop is tailored to enrich your calligraphic development.
Classes will finish by early afternoon to allow participants to work on their own in the calligraphy studio.
 
Vienna was voted recently as the most liveable city in the world. It is also the cultural centre of Austria celebrated with its numerous museums, art galleries and historic opera houses. The relaxing environment and friendly atmosphere will certainly make this symposium a memorable experience.
