Here I am
A collection of paintings by the Mawaheb artists about what inspires them in life and small figurines based on people with special needs that will be placed around the Al Fahidi district, some visible but most hidden creating a kind of treasure hunt for visitors to the area. Attached to the figures will be a short message inviting visitors to come to MAWAHEB and meet our talented artists.
Mawaheb is the Arabic word for ‘talent’, an art studio for the determined ones aged 16 years and above. The concept behind Mawaheb is to bridge the gap between society and the determined ones who can often lack direction once they finish school. Artists can learn the principles of art using a variety of media under the direction of resident art teachers and assistant volunteers, regularly showing their artworks in local and international exhibitions.
