THE ART OF CARING – exhibition opening

The Public Affairs Office of the U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), in conjunction with the 976 Art Gallery and Max Mall, organized “The Art of Caring”, an exhibition of artwork by children in Arhangai in support of the rights of persons with disabilities. Asked how they would promote inclusiveness, the children produced beautiful pieces of art in celebration of the contributions of the disabled to their communities, the Mongolian society, and the world. To help kick-off the “The Art of Caring”, six Paralympian athletes shared stories of their own personal journeys and triumphs that led them to London. Representatives from the U.S. Embassy including the US Ambassador Piper Campbell, along with Mercy Corps, the implementing organization for USAID’s “Fostering an Inclusive Environment for Local Disabled” project, through which the children’s art was produced, representatives of the Disabled People’s Organizations and the general public attended the opening of the “The Art of Caring”. The exhibition will be shown through October 1, 2012. For more information about the FIELD project, please visit http://mongolia.usaid.gov/our-work/special-projects/field-ii/.
