Led by Zahraa Al Ali and Ola Al Khafaji, the exhibition showcases an array of household crafts, from intricate knitting and embroidery to captivating artistic paintings and calligraphy.

Throughout the month of Ramadan, the exhibition will continue to serve as a hub of cultural celebration and community engagement. It will be hosting traditional folk performances such as “Majina” and other Iraqi cultural delights. The exhibition is not only a display of talent, but most importantly, a platform for Iraqi women to come together and support one another.
