Never limit art to certain type of people, or a level of education and social status. It should be open to all because we can not predict the amount of creativity one can hold.
This is exactly how I felt today at Contemporary Art Platform (CAP) – Kuwait when students of Kuwait Center of Autism visited us earlier to participate in Mutual Writings Calligraffiti workshops lead by French artist Vincent Abadie Hafez.
The four young men excitingly painted and wrote on a wall, letting their imagination lead them to create: a girl, banana, balls, flowers and butterflies. There was a huge joy in watching their enthusiasm and happiness in the small things they are painting, how they explain to us and discuss what they are doing.
Giving them the opportunity to show their creativity and be part of an artistic event is I believe is the reason of the happiness, there was no limits or rules even if one of them had a spelling mistake. They felt they are part of Kuwait’s cultural scene because of art; to involve everyone in and is one of the greatest things art provides to society!
We invited them to come for Mutual Writings Calligraffiti workshops Closing Reception on Saturday (RSVP). I’ll leave you with some photos of Kuwait Center of Autism to CAP:
And here is the result of a wonderful inspiring day, thanks CAP – Kuwait for such event.
