Pablo Picasso said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” The same joy can be obtained by doing service for the weakest and most vulnerable forms of life on earth: dogs, cats, and other animals around us that are lost, abandoned, neglected, injured, sick or abused, often considered stray or as they say in Urdu, Aawara (free and independent). It is exactly this emotion that motivated Rimsha Jalil, and her artist friends to put together a one-day group art exhibition titled Aawara, in Islamabad on Monday, 27th February, 2024. The exhibition put up at Dahlia, a cafe that has opened its doors in Islamabad about six months ago, was a heartwarming endeavor, uniting art with animal welfare. Hundred percent of proceeds from sales have been donated by artists and the curator to Todd’s Welfare Society, which has been working to bring ease to suffering animals since 2016. Dahlia, which is closed on Mondays, volunteered to provide the space for the exhibition and play its part. The cheery and chic backdrop of Dahlia was the perfect setting for the eclectic and unconventional nature of the exhibition.

This year, it has brought back its “No 600 Gallery” initiative by hosting an art exhibition to raise awareness of eating disorders. The exhibition will be hosted at the hospital from 1 July to the end of September.

The artwork featured in the exhibition, titled “Love, Food and Life”, mostly comes from two sources. One part is art made by patients who were treated for eating disorders at the Center and their families, the other includes works submitted by artists who suffer or have suffered from eating disorders. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, collages, writings and craft items illustrating the experience of suffering from eating disorders. The artworks are displayed against pink and blue backdrops representing stronger and calmer emotions. Visitors can leave a message on the pieces of paper or a whiteboard at the end of the exhibition.
