1001 Inventions, of which Community Jameel is a strategic partner, is an international science and cultural heritage initiative reaching 250 million people around the world. This award-winning travelling block-buster exhibition and educational programme uncovers a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements from Arab-speaking civilisations, and how those contributions helped to shape our modern world.

With 1001 Inventions, we uncover thousands of years of scientific and cultural achievements made during the golden age of Muslim civilisation dating back to the 7th century onwards. We also create awareness about their role in laying the foundations of our modern world by showcasing the contributions of inspirational men and women, of different faiths and cultures, of a civilisation that spread from Spain to China.

For four years we have travelled all over the globe, exhibiting in prestigious locations such as the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC or Värmlands Museum in Karlstad, garnering enthusiasm from the general public as well as the attention of diplomats, lawmakers, and NGOs.

We continue to form strategic alliances with partners such as National Geographic and to draw on the expertise of academics.
