Elephant Parade, the organisation famous for holding the world’s largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues in support of elephant conservation; will this weekend the 3rd October present an Artbox Workshop at The Farm in Al Barari Dubai.
This creative and thought provoking event will raise awareness of the conservation challenges facing the Asian Elephant as well as promoting the need for environmental sustainability and improved emotional intelligence. Locally based artists will facilitate the participants’ creativity during the workshop sessions taking place at the event.
Maria Hedegus an American Fine Artist and muralist working with the Elephant Parade as a creative facilitator said “I’m honoured to participate in the Artbox Workshop not only because of Elephant Parade’s wonderful commitment to elephant conservation, but because it also promotes appreciation for the arts – which I am passionate about! I am excited to be part of an event where people will be creating and having fun, as well as raising awareness for this wonderful charity.”
Once you purchase your Artbox kit you may participate in the workshop for free. Your participation in the event will support conservation efforts as 20% of Elephant Parade net profit are donated to elephant conservation projects.
The Artbox Workshop will be presented in partnership with The Farm Al Barari. Chef Yves, Head Chef at the Farm Al Barari said “We are proud to be a part of this wonderful initiative to raise awareness about elephant conservation. We at Al Barari continuously support such causes to make the planet a better place. With less than 50,000 Asian elephants left in the world, we need to do our part to save these majestic creatures from extinction and invite you all to The Farm to participate,”
