HA NOI (VNS) — Disabled children will tell their stories and dreams through a painting exhibition that opens this weekend in Ha Noi.
The exhibition is the result of Imperfection, a project that aims to bring out the talent in children with disabilities.
The project was launched by the Centre for Sustainable Development Studies Viet Nam (CSDS) along with a group of high school students in Ha Noi. These students visited the centres for disadvantaged children, taught them to paint and selected the best artworks for the exhibition.
Entitled Pieces, the exhibition will be held over two days at Cong Nhan (Workers) Cinema, 42 Trang Tien Street, Ha Noi.
All the paintings will be on sale to raise funds for the children and their Hoa Binh (Peace) Village in Thanh Xuan District, Ha Noi.
It's hoped that the exhibition will be a bridge between the disabled children and society, giving them an opportunity to open their minds with other people and express their talent, according to Le Dao Duc Anh, a representative of CSDS. — VNS
