Former cultural affairs minister Asaduzzaman Noor has urged parents to motivate their children to explore art, culture, and history.

“Art can set us free. We need to provide them [students] with opportunities like this event where people can learn about their talents,” he said at the opening of a three-day art exhibition at Zainul Gallery of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Dhaka University (DU) on Saturday.

Eminent cartoonist Professor Rafiqun Nabi, DU Fine Art Faculty Dean Professor Nisar Hossain, UNDP Bangladesh Country Director Sudipto Mukherjee, JICA Country Programme Coordinator Naoki Matsumura, and Astrotex Group Director Tahmina Tanji attended the event as special guests.

“I could not even imagine that it would be this amazing,” Nabi said. “This exhibition can surely be considered a bridge between the rural and urban artists.”

Professor Nisar said that such exhibitions are necessary to “create breathing space” in our society.

Advisor of Art Festival 2019 Gazipur and Additional Secretary of the Disaster Management and Relief Ministry Md Mohsin presided over the program. He praised the initiative and asked UNDP and JICA to continue their supportive collaborations.

He, and other guests, also thanked the attending scouts, who represented the Bhawal Mirzapur Haji Jamir Uddin School and College, Gazipur.
