This Weekend in Karachi: Ramzan at the Library
We’re not cruel, we won’t make you spend this weekend in Karachi outdoors. Instead, we’ve found five amazing indoor activities to keep you, your friends, and your families preoccupied till iftar time. Here are our top five picks for your weekend:
International Museum Day
Where else but the cultural capital of Karachi would one find an event dedicated to International Museum Day. If you didn’t celebrate with me last week, you still have time. Just head on over to this exclusive photo exhibition honouring the day, albeit a bit late.
P.S. The event is kid-friendly
Ramzan Qavvali Night
Another weekend, another exclusive event by T2F for the whole squad. Subhan Ahmed Nizami’s troupe has most recently taught the art of qavvaali to famed ethnomusicologist, Martina Catella, and performed at international festivals.
P.S. Tickets will be available at the venue
Julie Murphy’s powerful novel about self-acceptance and upending stereotypes has inspired a Netflix adaptation and will be the inspiration you didn’t know you needed. Head on over to the library this weekend in Karachi for some inspiration.
P.S. Register to attend
Shifu Muhammad Munawwar Shamroz is the senior most practitioner of Taichi and Chi Gong in Pakistan. He’s going to be teaching participants self-defence and healing techniques, along with mindfulness. We could do with that.
P.S. Sign up for this three-month course at the venue
Finally, a little something for the kids this weekend in Karachi; tiny tales. It’s time for them to embark on an exciting adventure with a fearless little penguin from the Antarctic with Rob Biddulph’s award-winning children’s book, Blown Away.
