HOPE and the Omid Foundations:
HOPE is an exhibition at the Focus Art Gallery in Dubai which is organised by Maneli Keykavoussi and Isabelle van den Eynde in collaboration with the Omid-e-Mehr Foundation (Iran) and the Omid Foundation (United Kingdom).
All the works of art exhibited have been donated to Omid. One hundred percent of the sales proceeds will thus go to support Omid's programs and activities.
Despite their past difficulties, and the obstacles still facing them, Omid's young clients have dreams like all of us. They yearn to participate in life, and to make meaningful contributions to the world around them. Through this exhibition you have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of these young women.
Our special thanks go to the artists who so generously donated their works. But none of this would have been possible without the dedication, expertise and support of the large number of persons who dedicated themselves to this endeavour. We need to single out our appreciation for the contributions of Farhad Bakhtiar, Tessa de Caters, Farbod Dowlatshahi, Camelia Esmaili, Isabelle van den Eynde, Farhad Farjam, Mohammadreza Ghaem-Maghami, Hengameh Golestan, Maneli Keykavoussi, Reza Nader Sepahi, Nazanin Paykarara, Baha Sadat-Tehrani, Omid Tehrani and Ralph Worthington. On behalf of all the girls in our care, a big thank you.
Sunday to Thursday, 11am to 7pm.
FOCUS ART GALLERY, Al Quoz 1, Dubai, UAE.
