A digital Qur’an exhibition comes to Birmingham for the first time

The University of Birmingham is bringing a major interactive digital exhibition telling the fascinating story of the Birmingham Qur’an to the UAE for the first time.

Exhibition visitors will be able to explore the manuscript in digital form as well as viewing a detailed replica of the holy script.

The exhibition will form a highlight of the UK/UAE 2017 Year of Creative Collaboration, held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and HRH The Prince of Wales.

Working closely with the British Council and the Ministry of Culuture and knowledge development as strategic partner, the University is bringing the unique exhibition to Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
