As part of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority’s (Dubai Culture) digital campaign #CreateTogether, and in association with Briar Prestidge Trading LLC, CreateNations has announced that UAE artists can submit their designs for their second collection of paint-them-yourself Art Tees.
The new collection will showcase designs of the UAE-based artists, themed around mental health and happiness, in order to create awareness. The Art Tees can be purchased online at CreateNations with toxic-free fabric paints for a creative at-home painting project. The proceeds from the new collection will go to charity, via Emirates Red Crescent, under an initiative supported by the Department of Islamic Affairs.
Earlier, under the #CreateTogether campaign which sought to encourage local and UAE-based artists to share their talent through their chosen art form, the CreateNations fashion brand was launched during quarantine. The first collection was designed by 20 local artists including popular designs ‘Quarantine Fashion’ by Amamoda and ‘Pandemic’ by Mariya Li.
A creative mix of art and fashion, this unique project offers people the opportunity to turn their art into fashion for the good of society.
The artists are urged to submit their mental health and happiness themed designs by 29nd July via firstname.lastname@example.org in ai or PDF format.
