- Center takes a multidisciplinary approach at inaugural Islamic arts event

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia, Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) champions knowledge exploration and scientific discovery at the inaugural edition of the Diriyah Biennale Foundation's Islamic Arts Biennale. The Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to a reexamination of the relationship between culture and Islamic civilization at the biennale, held in Jeddah until April 23, 2023.

Ithra is where imagination is powered, ideas are born, knowledge shared and culture celebrated. All these elements are on display through a range of activities, including an art exhibition, an academic offering and the world premiere of a documentary film based on research into the Prophet Muhammad's hijrah from Makkah to Yathrib.

In the Footsteps of the Prophetwill be screened publicly for the first time at the biennale. In it, Dr. Abdullah Alkadi, one of the world's leading experts on the topic, retraces the Prophet's steps. It is based on Ithra's Hijrah exhibition, aimed at expanding people's knowledge of the event that saw Islam catapulted to a major religion that would give rise to a great civilization.
