Sharjah Art Foundation’s new project ‘Do It’ is an innovative approach to help integrate individuals and community to make new works of art.
The project, which launched on Saturday, January 23, will remain open to public until April 2016.
More than 60 artists from across the region have written instructions that anyone can use to make a new work of art.
Public is invited to join in the workshops, performances and thought-provoking activities on one of the many Open Days, scheduled over the course of the exhibition.
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
Schools, universities and communities across the UAE will be collaborating with the Sharjah Arts Foundation to make it a success.
