Karachi: The British Council organises an art exhibition for school children as part of their Pakistan/UK Season programme.

As part of Commonwealth Connections (CWC), the Pakistan/UK Season is supporting an activity to engage six public and private schools, including one special school, that have been working with the wider CWC programme to provide a unique opportunity to build sports, arts, and citizenship connections throughout the education sector between the host city and country and the geographies of the Commonwealth.

The Pakistan/UK Season hosted an art exhibition of students who have been involved with the programme. The event was held on Saturday, where parents, students, and community members attended to encourage the young talent in Pakistan.

Along with the art exhibition, a number of engaging activities were planned for kids to help them develop their social and cognitive skills. Speaking for the event, Mariya Afzal, Director Pakistan/UK New Perspectives, said: “Through collaborations, the PK-UK Season adds value by supporting this Commonwealth Connections (CWC) event that will showcase children’s creativity and cultural wealth through arts activities primarily focusing on themes such as culture and heritage, environment and sustainability, and opportunities for women and girls.”

The aim of the CWC programme is to allow young people to feel more ownership and develop an ability to shape their communities. Such activities will help young people understand and examine global issues and get involved in positive dialogue across borders and cultures to develop their global citizenship skills.

Towards the end of the event, the participants of the art exhibition received certificates from the British Council staff, who appreciated the efforts of the young talent. The British Council also encouraged schools to make an effort to make these children valuable assets not only to our society but to the international community as well.

The Pakistan/UK Season was launched in March this year, marking the 75th anniversary of Pakistan. The programme will showcase the cultural wealth and contemporary creativity of both countries. The program’s goal is to foster professional collaboration in the cultural, creative, and educational sectors. It will focus on challenging perceptions, particularly amongst the younger generation in both countries. An extensive programme will also explore collaborations across the themes of culture and heritage, the environment and sustainability, and women and girls. One of the highlights will be multidisciplinary artist Osman Yousef Zada’s Infinity Bridge project at the V & A in London, in partnership with the British Council and Pakistan High Commission.

The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural exchange and educational opportunities.
