We are delighted to have you join us on an on line exhibition
preview, just for students like yourself. Pick up your pass for

You’ll want to discuss much of what you’re about to learn, and
it’s much simpler to have a partner right there to share the visit
You’ll have a chance to visit the exhibition, meet some of the
featured artists and their works, and then join the exhibition
planning team to decide where a few chosen works might be placed
in the exhibition.
On your journey we will introduce you to Islam

and their beliefs, and to Amadu Bamba,
an African Sufi saint.
