The Aga Khan Trust for Culture Education Programme has supported the Barakat Trust, London, in developing a series of
curated events called ‘Converging Paths’ undertaken in partnership with Asia House. The
series shares the arts and heritage of the Islamic world through performances,
exhibitions, film, discussions, and events that combine old and new—showcasing
vibrant, creative, and inspiring cultural experiences. It seeks to raise
awareness about the cultural richness of the Muslim world, with all its variety
of peoples, cultures, and religions.
Four events in 2020 focused exclusively on AKTC-related
projects and initiatives. These were:
