We invite you to submit artwork for The Impact: an art exhibition that explores conversation around the concept of giving and the charitable month of Ramadan. This is an open call for people of all skills and talents, amateurs or professionals, open to all ages, based in the UAE. Participants can submit works in one or more of the following forms: drawing, painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, textile, video and mixed media.
Every year thousands of people donate their time and money to a specific cause, but the reasons for giving are so diverse. What has been your impact on the world and how has the world impacted you? This exhibition is an opportunity to creatively engage the community and reflect on the positive actions around us. How can we share knowledge, broaden our horizons, educate and inspire change?
