Exhibition debut for three young artists at the Danish Ambassador's residence

Art Weekend is a recurrent event where Ambassadors in Dhaka transform their residences into art galleries for two days. Besides the Danish Ambassador, the Ambassadors of Germany and Norway also participated.

This year, the Danish exhibition featured three young artists from the Chittagong Hill Tracts, an area bordering Myanmar. The area is characterized by beautiful nature and animal life, but also by violent weather conditions and poverty. It was the first time that any of the three artists featured in an art exhibition and they were all proud to present their work to Dhaka's art-lovers and members of the diplomatic community.

Denmark has been present in the Chittagong Hill Tracts for many years fighting poverty and ensuring protection of the indigenous minority living in the hills.
