Saeed bin Suloom, CEO, Dubai Humanitarian City said, “We are always eager to identify and support events that are consistent with our mission of raising the awareness of the general public about issues of global interest. The Humanitarian City’s support for this art exhibition which aims to promote peace, education and culture is a small step in this direction.”
The “World Boys and Girls Art Exhibition” is an appeal for global peace and friendship from those with the greatest stake in the future: the children of the world. The event, sponsored by Soka Gakkai International (Japan), is held in various cities around the world in cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
Ahmed Bin Al Sheikh, Managing Partner of Dubai Shopping Centre which is also supporting the event said, “We are happy to support the exhibition being organized by Soka Gakkai International as it brings an important message of global peace during the holy month of Ramadan. We hope that through efforts such as these the society can contribute towards the betterment of the global community.”
It is the organizers’ hope that the exhibition, with a display of 147 artworks representing 115 countries including the UAE, will serve as a site of rediscovery for adults – putting grown-ups in touch with their common humanity. An important message contained in World Boys and Girls Art Exhibition, says SGI; is the freedom of expression that the pictures and drawings represent. Indeed, there are many children in the world who are unhappy because there is no peace and stability in their world, or worse, because they have no freedom even to draw.
