The Little Art launched “Equally Loud”, new platform enabling young minds from marginalized societies to express and share their experiences through creative mediums. The new platform was launched an evening of open discussion with creative minds showcasing thought provoking films made by children and youth with an aim to be Equally Loud.
The event was be attended by participants belonging to professional, media, arts and educational backgrounds including children and youth whose film will be screened along with their parents. Principals and teachers from each school also attended the evening which commenced with a welcome note, followed by a panel discussion on the screening of films made by children and youth.
Moderated by Founder/Director The Little Arts, Mr.Shoaib Iqbal, the panel discussion included Asghar Nadeem Syed – Pakistani play & drama writer, Muneeza Hashmi – Director Lahore Arts Council, Sohail Warraich and others During the panel discussion, Asghar Nadeem Syed said “After witnessing the work through these films, I would like to highlight and appreciate few things. All the children who created these films were from underprivileged backgrounds and I’m very happy to see that you have inspired and mentored them to come out and express themselves as no one has ever given them this opportunity because of absence of
such facilities.
Muneeza Hashmi said “Equally Loud” by the Little Art has started a great debate as usually these topics are seldom discussed or are left unaddressed. In such cases, continuity is key and I would urge the team to take this even further ahead”.
The workshops are being held in 10 schools in Lahore and Faisalabad. 4 Trust School campuses, 2 Garrison schools and Dreamland Public School in Lahore and Umul Madaris Model School, Dar-e-Arqam, and St. Catherine’s Girls High School in Faisalabad were also part of the workshops.
