New Programs for Spring

Garden of Peace & Hope, Afghanistan

In the Garden of Peace & Hope, I’ve planned for an exhibition on Women’s International Day in March. Another exhibition was going on last month in February. As the National Gallery building is under construction, we need a place for our exhibitions. *Sakina, the head of the National Gallery, introduced another place close to the Garden of Peace & Hope. I visited this place and it was not an appropriate place for our work. I decided to go to the Afghan Cultural House and talk with them about our exhibition. They agreed, and now I’m working on a new program that includes women’s handicrafts, drawings, and local music.
