ART 4 SIGHT is a charity art event where donated artwork is exhibited and sold in a fundraising auction to support Noor Dubai's global programs.
ART 4 SIGHT was inspired by 12 year old Fatoumata from Mali who regained her sight following eye surgery performed by the Noor Dubai team. The young girl was fascinated by the contrast of colors around her and amazed the team by painting while still in the recovery stage.
With overwhelming support from several prominent artists, local art galleries and renowned art auction houses, ART 4 SIGHT managed to successfully raise a significant amount of funds for the foundation and helped increase awareness of the ongoing plight of those living in darkness.
Given the success of the event, the Noor Dubai Foundation has decided to make the event an annual one thus creating a platform to continuously fund the fight against preventable blindness.
