Magic of Persia hosted a wonderfully successful two-day celebration for Norouz at the British Museum in March 2010. Over the two days approximately 40,000 visitors enjoyed an array of musicians, dancers, installations and family workshops against the grand backdrop of the Great Hall.
One of the installations that took place over the Norouz Weekend was that of AKSbazi.com; the culmination of an online photography game entitled ‘Spring’. Iranians both inside and outside Iran were invited to participate by submitting photographs of a new beginnings and out of the hundreds of images collected, selected photographs were displayed and onlookers were encouraged to leave their comments.
