In the February of 2017, during T2F's "A Community Affair" which celebrated the reception of The Prince Claus Award to our organisation, Summaiya Jillani and her students from the T2F's atelier — a workshop she regularly conducts with us — painted a mural of our founder, Sabeen Mahmud, in our parking space. Surrounded by tablas, film reels, and flowers, the mural symbolized everything Sabeen loved and that T2F stands for. However, in the last few months, the city's dust, smog, and rains have left the mural covered in a thick layer of grime. Join us during this year's Hafta Itwar Art Bazaar as Summaiya returns with her IVS and T2F students to re-do and also expand the mural, accentuating its tones and brining life back to it! This is a community-inclusive mural painting activity. So bring your old aprons, paints, brushes, and bring your energy! . . . . Join us for a brand new edition of T2F’s cult mini weekend festival – ‘Hafta Itvaar Art Bazaar 2019’ – happening on 19th and 20th of January! Hafta Itvaar Art Bazaar is a two-day party held at T2F that celebrates our cross-cultural, inter-disciplinary cultural activities based around an open Art Bazaar showcasing, promoting and selling the work of diverse artists and craftspeople! Multiple activities will be taking place throughout the weekend inside the Faraar Gallery on the ground floor, our Café on the 1st floor, our open air Rooftop, and even spilling out on the Streets around our building! Make sure to dress warm, and be prepared to make random friendships while you walk up and down and around our building chasing after your favourite event or Art activity. Watch this space over the coming days for more details about our program because the party never stops at T2F! Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019 & Sunday, 20th January 2019 Time: 03:30 PM – 10:00 PM Venue: The Second Floor, T2F Entry: Rs.100/- (Please support our vision of intellectual poverty alleviation by donating generously)
