By Wam

Sharjah Children Biennial, SCB, has revealed that the event has attracted over 3,360 visitors since 15th January. The current edition, themed ‘A World as Big as Your Imagination’, runs until 15th February at the Sharjah Art Museum, and is a showcase of 376 artworks by children of 27 Arab and foreign nationalities.

Commenting on the announcement, Reem BinKaram, President of SCB, said, "In the two weeks since SCB’s opening, we have received overwhelming footfall representing various nationalities and age groups.

Most visitors have expressed special appreciation for our efforts in involving children from Za’atari Refugee Camp in Jordan, and Dar Zayed Orphanage in Maldives, whose artworks helped them gain real insights into the innermost thoughts and aspirations of these children growing up amid difficulty and strife."

The artworks showcased under all three categories of SCB: Environment, Fantasy and Reality, and Architecture Design, convey the youth’s understanding and perspectives on several issues and themes across these categories.
