Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], December 9 (ANI): In a bid to empower womenfolk in Kashmir valley, Jammu and Kashmir Tourist Development Corporation (JKTDC) had organised an art exhibition on Wednesday.
"JKTDC has provided a great platform, I make candles at home, Kashmiri girls have many talents but due to lack of a proper platform they are behind, it is a great initiative to promote Kashmir art also," said a participator.
Any region will develop when both men and women get an equal opportunity, the thinking that women are "safe" at home is wrong, this art exhibition is a positive change," said Shoiab Tariq, a local visitor.
The young female artists got a platform to showcase their masterpieces. "In winters, the life here becomes slow but with this cultural programmes the city became happening, tourists came here and saw the exhibition," said a Faqira Mir, eclectic painter.
General Manager of JKTDC, Tabasum Kaamli said they got a great response from youngsters.
Almost 25 young female artists participated and displayed their artwork including Papier-mache, sketch work, eclectic painting, calligraphy etc. The sale cum art exhibition took place near Jhelum River. (ANI)
