The Camilo José Cela University Almagro Campus was the venue chosen to host the Arabic calligraphy exhibition entitled Human Rights in Islamic Culture. The exhibition, housed in the Assembly Hall, consisted of a collection of paintings that exemplify Arabic culture and calligraphy throughout history.
Nieves Segovia, President of SEK Education Group, gave thanks on behalf of the UCJC for the opportunity to host the exhibition, and for the chance of opening a SEK school in Qatar. “Bringing together education and culture with such an exceptional exhibition as the one that opens at our university fills us with satisfaction and forges ever closer ties between Spain and the State of Qatar.”
Jaber Al-Marri, Minister Plenipotentiary of the Embassy of Qatar, also said a few words in which he explained how each of the paintings in the exhibition correspond to verses from the Koran and refer to Human Rights, and highlighted that “the exchange of students between Spain and Qatar is a reflection of the importance of cultural dialogue and indicative of the bridges being built between cultures and civilizations.” “Spain has always been a place of coexistence and understanding between different peoples, cultures and religions,” added Al-Marri.
Among those invited to the event were personalities such as the ambassadors of Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Colombia, Panama and Peru, as well as members of the Board of Directors of SEK Education Group.
