Ruh Al-Alam was invited to exhibit his work at MOCAFest 2015, part of the 11th World Islamic and Economic Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia between 3-5 November 2015. During the course of the exhibition, Ruh also participated as a speaker onstage discussing key topics such as ‘Creating cultural capital’ alongside Alia Khan and others, and ‘Reviving the Jawi Script’ alongside fellow-artist eL-Seed.
He also held a live freestyle calligraphy workshop for attendees with great feedback and positive reviews.
