AUK Participates in Art for Sudan Exhibition
Alumni and faculty from the American University of Kuwait (AUK) helped organize and participate in the Manifesto 13’s ‘Art for Sudan’ exhibition and silent auction that was held to raise awareness on the recent crisis in Sudan. The event was organized by Manifesto 13 and held at their office.
The exhibition’s artwork was provided by AUK Associate Professors at the Department of Art & Graphic Design William Andersen and Maryam Hosseinnia, as well as AUK alumni Myriam Kotb and Omar Al-Nakib, among other well-known artists from Kuwait and abroad. Proceeds from the auction went towards the Sudan Doctors Union—an independent and non-partisan organization devoted to the development of qualified and unprejudiced healthcare in Sudan. Professor William recognized the success of the event, noting that all the artwork sold, and all the money was donated.
The team at Manifesto13 commented, "Manifesto13 is proud to announce that our silent auction to fund medical aid has raised over KD1,235 for the Sudanese Doctor’s Union! We wish to offer a big thank you to the artists who donated their work and the generosity of the bidders who made the silent auction a success."
