Jumeirah-based shopping mall, Sunset Mall, is marking this year’s event differently in a bid to raising awareness for Dubai Centre for Special Needs (DCSN).
The community mall, which is owned by Dubai Investment Properties LLC, has organized an exciting Ramadan-themed art exhibition under the themes of “Ramadan, Happiness, Sharing and Kindness”.
Dubbed “Art For Good”, the art exhibition is set to kick off on Thursday, May 23 and run until the end of Ramadan. The show is free and open to the public from 8 p.m. to midnight.
According to the Sunset Mall spokesperson, the art exhibition is part of the retailer’s support for the noble Year of Tolerance initiative, which was mooted by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE.
“Sunset Mall is proud to be associated with DCSN in marking this year’s Holy month of Ramadan. The Art For Good exhibition, which will showcase unique works of art created by the students of DCSN, is our unique way of celebrating this Holy event. Our objective is to enhance awareness for this important institution,” said Melville Goveas, Operation Marketing Manager.
As part of its support, Sunset Mall has offered free mall space for the art exhibition. This, according to Melville Goveas, Operation marketing manager will set a strong foundation for a long-term partnership with DCSN as well as other like-minded non-profit organizations in the region.
Speaking on behalf of DCSN, Dr Mahshid Salehi- Director of Dubai Center For Special Needs said:
“We are happy to be partnering with Sunset Mall to not only marking this year’s Ramadan in style but also in giving our students with special needs a platform to show the world what they can do. We, therefore, welcome everyone to this noble initiative to support and encourage our talented students.”
The Art For Good artworks, which include paintings and artifacts, are exclusively created by the children of DCSN at their center in Al Safa, Dubai.
