Social Empowerment through Arts
Date: 17th to 23rd December 2004
Venue: Foyer du Theatre, Municipality of Port Louis- Mauritius

Confused, naïf and hurt by the very real fact of the problematic of the society. Zaahirah could not digest it- for her it’s like eating soup with a folk. She started to transpose effectively her feeling and emotions in her way for the emerging scourge. She quoted drugs problem it’s like a vicious cycle!

Arts is a means of communication for her, It is used as a vehicle for primary prevention. My paintings depict the concept ranging from poverty, education, HIV/AIDS, single parents, peer pressure and others.... her stroke speaks in itself with a firm determination, aggressive and looking for hope.
