IN HONOUR OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, THE RETREAT PALM DUBAI MGALLERY HOSTS AN INSPIRATIONAL INSPIRED BY HER ART EXHIBITION
In celebration of International Women’s Day on 8th of March, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery hosts its second exhibition at the hotel’s RGallery with ZeeArts, a leading arts community group that reflects on progress made to call for change and to celebrate the acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who play an extraordinary role in history.
Launching on 1 st March at the property’s R Gallery, the exhibition will feature the works of seven motivational female artists from different parts of the world including Africa, Europe, Middle East and Asia, each with an inspiring story to share. RGallery is created to introduce local, regional and international artists on an activist platform at the hotel to embrace the concept of women empowerment. The exhibition will be open to the public until April 30, 2018.
Samir Arora, General Manager, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery explains: “We are delighted to partner with ZeeArts community for the second time to promote such a significant venture and empower women around the world. We believe that gender equality and inspiring women should be paramount across all sectors of work and hope to encourage others with many more such activation
to further drive this in the region.”
Women empowerment is at the forefront of UAE’s national strategy with the aim to be achieved by 2021, providing equality in education opportunities and economic empowerment. Zaahirah Muthy, founder of ZeeArts and Curator, said: “We as women go through different experiences, challenges and emotions in our life but no matter what, we have the extraordinary power to overcome everything that happens to us and make a difference. Women Empowerment is an exhibition that will resonate to those women who have chosen to make a difference. I would like to pay tribute to all those women who play a pivotal role in society.”
The Women Empowerment Exhibition ties in perfectly with the MGallery brand’s Inspired by Her initiative, a female driven notion showcasing a set of offers at the property that are dedicated to women’s expectations, motivated by the increasing number of female travellers across the globe.
