The Museum of Islamic Arts & Heritage (MIAH) Foundation is pleased to announce its first in-house curated exhibition at the MIAH Islamic Arts & Heritage Gallery in Balsall Heath, Birmingham. Taught by the Pen: the Qur’an and Calligraphy explores the role of the art of calligraphy in the preservation of the Qur’an in its written form through the centuries. The exhibition is being launched during the month of Ramadan, during which the first verses were revealed. We will mark its launch with a private view on the evening of Thursday 14th March 2024.

The exhibition will be open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 12 pm-6 pm, starting from Friday 15th March 2024. It will run until 25th May 2024.


We would like to make this exhibition as accessible as possible and so have subsidised the price of the tickets. However, we still need to make a small charge for entry to help cover our costs. To guarantee your place, please book your tickets in advance using the link. We will allow tickets to be purchased at the door, however, this is subject to availability and on busy days this may not be possible.

Concessions (students, low-income): £3.50 (+ ticket fees)

Ages over 65: (flexible donation amount – whatever you can afford)
