Minister of Environment and Climate Change HE Sheikh Dr Faleh bin Nasser bin Ahmed bin Ali Al Thani inaugurated a charitable art exhibition titled 'Gaza: A Pulse of My Colors', at Qatar University (QU). Artistic works about current events of war, blockade and destruction in the Gaza Strip were showcased in the exhibition.

Department of Fine Arts in the College of Education at QU and the Culture and Arts Chapter of the QU Alumni Association has organized the exhibition.

The exhibition featured a wide array of artworks, including paintings and handcrafted items created by the students of the Fine Arts Department. In collaboration with the Qatar Charity, these artworks were available for purchase, and all proceeds were dedicated to the relief efforts for our brethren in Gaza.

The exhibition included the unveiling of an artwork of the Palestinian map which all visitors had the opportunity to sign, as well as a live drawing by several artists. There was also a presentation of short videos about the Palestinian cause, in addition to other artistic activities such as face and hand painting, among other engaging activities.

Head of the Department of Art Education at the College of Education Dr Latifa Al Meghaissib said that the Gaza war left many martyrs and wounded, as well as the bombing, destruction, and a long-lasting blockade that has deeply affected human sentiments. Particularly, artists, who employ their brushes as expressive means, are deeply moved by these events. This charitable art exhibition aims to allow Art Education students to express their feelings about ongoing events such as the war, the blockade, and the destruction in Gaza through their artistic works.
