We are excited to share that this year we have had some remarkable achievements in terms of growing our projects. The little seeds we had sown a few years ago have started to grow and branch out.
For the first time ArtBeat has taken its exhibitions to the city of lights – Karachi. The Little Art collaborated with Teachers Resource Center who are our wonderful partners in Karachi and with the support of Karachi Arts Council we organized our very first opening exhibition at their gallery from 9th Oct- 10th Oct, 2015.
The opening event was inaugurated by the chief guest, Meher Afroz, senior fine artist and the guests of honor included eminent sculptor and painter, Abdul Jabbar Gull, our jury member and award winning visual artist, Amina Ansari and secretary of Karachi Arts Council, Mr. Ahmed Shah.
The guests awarded prizes and certificates to the schools that participated and had their work exhibited at the public gallery. Some of the schools that were represented at the opening event included: Happy Home High School, Beaconhouse Kindergarten branch, Nazimabad, The City School Darakshan, PSS Montessori, Foundation Public school and Education Bay school.
There was an air of excitement amongst the children of having their work represented by ArtBeat in Karachi and we can’t wait to expand even further and provide more opportunities to children in the region.
Our dreams of developing a visual culture for children and young people in Pakistan are slowly starting to realize and even though we have a long way to go, we are certain that the friends and supporters we find along the way will help us further our mission to nurture creativity amongst our nation.
