(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Gailani Art Retreat, the brainchild of artist Ibrahim Gailani, will sign an agreement with Whispers of Serenity on Saturday to popularise the concept of healing through art. The deal, which will be signed at the 15th Gailani Art Retreat, aims to use different art forms like painting, poetry and dance to rejuvenate the mind and body.
With this partnership, Whispers of Serenity will be the prime sponsor of Gailani Art Retreat which has conducted over 14 retreats over the last year in Muscat for over 130 participants.
''This was the most logical decision for us as there were numerous comparisons in the media about the similarities in our approach towards using art for healing purposes. Our pairing was simply meant to be,'' said Gailani.
This is not the first time the two organisations have joined hands. They had held an exhibition earlier titled, 'I am child', showcasing art as a healing tool for child abuse cases.
''With this partnership we will be able to offer our expertise to more individuals. We can make our sessions more attractive now,'' said Sayyida Basma al Said, Whispers of Serenity's founder and mental health counsellor. They also plan to offer customised team-building art retreats for corporates.<
