Last week Baha’is around the world celebrated the Birth of Baha’u’llah, and some of the Baha’is in London celebrated this special event in a unique and creative way. The team at Media Makes Us attended the holy day celebration at Hackney and captured a taste of some of the unique artistic installations which were on show on the night!
The celebration took place in an East London artists’ studio, which was transformed into an exhibition space that aimed to tell the story of the life of Baha’u'llah by providing a multi-sensory experience for viewers. Participants were invited to discover the history and Writings of the Faith for themselves through touch, smell and taste – by becoming part of the exhibition and walking around to discover clues and to immerse themselves in the rich imagery and historical details of the Faith and its holy Scriptures.
What a fascinating way to commemorate a Holy Day. A big thanks to the folks at Media Makes Us for allowing Baha’i Blog readers from all over the world to witness this amazing celebration!
