Attended by masters Amirkhani, Nasrollah Afjei and Keikhosro Khorush, and secretary of the program Mohammad-Hossein Shafiha, issues such as preparing the logo of biennial and publication of a book by the opening ceremony were discussed at the session.


Directors of the department of the Iranian Calligraphers Association in Tehran and Qazvin were also in attendance at the session.


Qazvin is the birthplace of Mir-Emad who was the titan of the nasta’liq script, a unique and ornate Iranian style of calligraphy.
