Emerging Voices is a project run by the Rising Sun Arts Centre supporting emerging curators to work with artists and communities in Reading. This one day exhibition will feature work from two recent Emerging Voices projects. 
Curator Khadija Niang commissioned Artists Hadil Tamim to work with people from Reading Refugee Support Group to create a work inspired by the flowers and buildings of the countries represented by people in the group. The final work is a beautiful, detailed painting inspired by Hadil's work which brings together Islamic art and British wildflowers. 
Curator Qamar Ayoubi commissioned Syrian artist Ahmad Alazami to work with community groups including Compass Recovery College, Deenway Montessori School, and Wild About Reading to create a wonderful, collaborative artwork. Participants guided by Ahmad contributed wooden panels which were brought together to create a piece which looked at the impact of lockdown on those involved.

Hadil Tamim's book Islamic Art Meets British Wildflowers and Ahmad Alazami's book Multi Dimensional Art Technique will both be available for purchase on the day.
