ZeeArts Community from UAE in collaboration with Liwa Art Hub and Paragon Arts from Oman, joined hands to bring the 2nd edition of Artistic Exchange Retreat between two neighboring countries UAE and Oman from Thursday 28th to 30th January this year.

The strategic concept is aimed at bringing the artists from UAE and Oman together to help promote the cross-cultural exchange of art, values and to understand its relevance
On the evening of 28th January 10 artists from Oman and 15 artists from Dubai set out for the most unforgettable journey to Liwa Art Hub. Exotic Liwa has long been a favorite destination and inspiration for countless literary, visual and performing artists and thinkers.

Next day morning the artists were taken for Liwa walks. The majesty and silence of the sand dunes were incredibly captivating. After a great photo shoot in the desert backdrop the artists were served with a very authentic local breakfast on red carpet. The liwa walks were followed by a panel discussion between esteemed Omani artist Mr. Anwar Sonya, esteemed Emirati artist Mr. Khalil Abdulwahid and the founder of Zee Arts Community, Ms Zaahirah Zabeen Muthy. The artists then participated in a very informative workshop on artists biography by a renowned fellow artist Kasia.

The entire evening Liwa Art Hub was oozing with art and passion towards art.
