LAST CHANCE The Values of Zayed
3 July 2019Free
“A country’s only true resource is its youth” is one of Sheikh Zayed’s best-known quotes. Tashkeel, in partnership with the Foundation for Social and Minor Affairs, has put that into practice: between October 2018 and March 2019, a group of young people were invited by the Foundation to take part in a dozen visual art workshops at Tashkeel’s Nad Al Sheba centre. Each session explored a value that reflects the legacy of Sheikh Zayed through a specific artistic medium; these workshops not only developed artistic skills but also assisted in fostering self-confidence, imagination, communication, problem-solving and creative thinking. The results are on show in this exhibition, the culmination of a creative journey for 45 young people aged between 8 and 21 years.
