ExecutionChildren with special needs struggle to communicate. The children at the Al Manzil School for special needs had made art as the means of self-expression. With every piece, the child was trying to reach out to the world. Conversations, an exhibition of their paintings gave them a platform to establish a dialogue with the world, while giving an opportunity to the world to peep into theirs. Conversations came to life through a simple device placed next to each painting. People could listen to what the child had to say, and then record their response for the child to hear, thus completing the conversation. The theme lent itself easily into other persuasive communication channels such as the catalogue, invites, e-invites, ATM screen messages and web banners. Together, these media channels raised awareness and got people to the exhibition. The event garnered interest not just within art circles but also across the media, driving organizations to come forward in support. While all the paintings were sold, raising over 200,000 dirhams, the real reward went to the children who heard those invaluable words of encouragement. Conversations is now a permanent platform that will continue to showcase the artistic talents of these children.
