The art and culture of many civilizations strongly connects to Nature, through the survival stories of life through the ages. It is important to explore these connections and share them with the upcoming generation inspire them to preserve our natural heritage for the wellbeing of all in the future. Bahrain and India hold a long standing connection, since the Dilmun civilization of Bahrain more than 3000 years ago and the Indus Valley Civilization of India, 5000 years back.
In this regard, we will try to celebrate 'Nature' through creations of eminent Artists, exploring the natural beauty, natural resources, art, culture and festivals of each nation.
The Big Draw was introduced in The Kingdom of Bahrain in 2019 by Dr. Sarah Clarke, through An event “Pathways to Wellbeing”, from where I could grab a memorable experience with inspiration, that made me participate in The Big Draw 2020. The theme of The Big Green Draw relates my soul, being a nature lover, and gives me an opportunity to actively involve and do my bit to connect people with nature.
