A workshop and exhibition entitled ‘Promoting Unity through Chinese and Jawi Calligraphy' was jointly organized by the Non-Muslim Affairs Unit of the Perak state government, General Studies Unit of Student Development Department, UniKL RCMP, Perak Chinese Calligraphy Association, National Seni Khat Association and MBBS Year 2 students. It was held on 2 November, 2016 at the Multi-Purpose Hall of the UniKL RCMP main campus in Ipoh.

Thumbs up for the event by Mr Low Leong Sin, the Dean of FOM, the Deputy Dean of FPHS, Head of Department for Student Development, Coordinator of the General Studies Unit and all the participants.

The objective of this programme was to showcase the link between the two types of artistic writing and the cultural and religious influences that have shaped these art forms popular among the Muslim and Chinese communities. This activity is also expected to bring about greater understanding among people of different cultures and promote these artistic forms among the younger generation of Malaysians. Beauty or ‘Cantik' was chosen as the theme for the workshop to symbolize the beauty that is portrayed in the writing styles of Chinese calligraphy and Seni Khat.
