WORLD OF IBN AL-HAYTHAM
Culture Event Creative worked with 1001 Inventions to produce and launch ‘The World of Ibn Al-Haytham’ an edutainment exhibition consisting of an exciting mix of highly engaging and interactive experiences including film, live shows, staged experiments, exhibits, workshops, educational materials and high-profile talks.
This experiential touring event is centred around a famous and historically significant scientist from the past. Born around a thousand years ago in present day Iraq, Al-Hasan Ibn al-Haytham (known in the West as “Alhazen”) was a pioneering scientific thinker who made important contributions to the understanding of vision, optics and light.
The event was launched as part of the Saudi Aramco Cultural Festival in Dammam in 2012 and has since toured across the Gulf states.
