Kagrart is an initiative for calligraphy and allied art forms, based in Calicut. Set in the serene old-world charm of the south beach in Calicut, the historic port town that was called “the city of truth” by seafaring Arab traders centuries back, with beautiful sea view and remarkable interior incorporating design elements from the local and global Muslim cultural heritage, Kagrart is a soulful bliss.
A space dedicated to calligraphy has been a long-term dream of calligrapher KareemGraphy, the founder who currently shuttles between Calicut and Doha, and his close friends. Kagrart is committed to the growth and spread of calligraphy in general and Arabic calligraphy in particular, in this part of the world. It caters to the needs of calligraphy lovers, learners and explorers by providing master sessions by reputed calligraphers, distributing high-quality materials needed for the art, conducting exhibitions of excellent works, and organizing workshops, talks and courses online and offline. It also plans creative collaborations with like-minded organisations, institutions and companies in the future.
