“With all the glitz and glamour that seems to always be promoted about Dubai, it is organizations like the foundation that are weaving the moral fabric of this diverse expatriate and growing community and tackling what are the taboo issues that exist not only here but all over the world,” says Fiona Petrocelli.
The Dubai International Art Center, where Petrocelli has served as a volunteer board member since 2014 forming collaborations between the center and local charities. will host Seasons of Change, an empowering Art Exhibition by the residents of Dubai Foundation for Women and Children’s Shelter (DFWAC).
DFWAC is a non-profit shelter in the UAE for women and children who were victims of domestic violence, child abuse, and human trafficking. There will be close to 30 Artworks on display and sale at the Art Exhibition, and all funds raised at the show will go to the Foundation to further empower and support the women & children of the DFWAC.
Celebrated Emirati artist Fatma Lootah will make an appearance as the guest of honor. The show opens to public from 6th till the 16th of September at Gallery 76.
