Live Audio Description

As part of the University of Birmingham’s Culture Forward initiative, Soul City Arts’s Artistic Director Mohammed Ali brings a specially made ‘nomadic reflection booth’ for the public to step inside and scribe and record their most cherished thoughts and du’as (prayers).

The installation will be set up within the elegant Assembly Rooms in the University’s Exchange building, free for the public to visit throughout the day and express their hopes, prayers, and du’as; the writings will be gathered in a same-day edit and shared on the Festival screen.

Installation Opening Times: Thursday, 3rd of August, 11:00 – 16:00, in The Exchange – University of Birmingham

Screening Time: Thursday, 3rd of August, 18:45, on the Festival Big Screen
