Deaf and mute artists held a sculpture gallery in Taiz, southern Yemen, to convey the human suffering caused by the war.
Through their sculptures that express the suffering that Yemen has been going through for seven years, the artists with special needs called on people to spread peace and stop the war on their city.
The exhibition was conducted with the support of the Zahrat Al-Jabal Foundation for Peace and Development as part of a project to support cultural and creative diversity in Taiz, and in support of people with special needs, and cooperation with the Generations Without Qat Organization.
- (SOUNDBITE) Iman Al-Qudsi – Secretary-General of the Al-Tomooh Association for the Deaf and Dumb in Taiz:
“11 deaf people from universities and institutes joined the plaster course, and they excelled. The gallery came at the initiative of Zahrat al-Jabal for Peace and Development and with the support of Generations Without Qat Organization. We hope that such galleries continue to support the deaf and dumb people because they work in handicrafts that develop their talents in these areas.”
