Pearls have been an object of fascination for millennia, creating economies driven by these much-coveted jewels of the sea. The webinar provides a first-hand account of a remarkable award-winning project to create a pearl trail on the island of Muharraq in Bahrain. Noura al-Sayeh, Head of Architectural Affairs at the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, sheds light on the remarkable transformation of Muharraq honoring the legacy of the pearl trade.

This webinar is part of Converging Paths, an initiative of Asia House and The Barakat Trust, supported by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, and it has been organised in partnership with the Islamic Art Circle at SOAS, University of London, United Kingdom.
