Abu Dhabi: Shaikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, on Thursday opened the Break an Egg Campaign, a charity event organised at Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche.

The campaign was launched in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Art Hub to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation, which fulfils the dreams of children suffering from serious illnesses.

In his opening remarks, Shaikh Nahyan said the exhibition, which brought together 18 local, regional and international artists commissioned by Abu Dhabi Art Hub to depict their interpretation of ‘The Egg’ in replicas on behalf of the charity, represented a new and non-traditional idea.

Each one of the artists used 50cm by 35cm fibreglass eggs as their canvas to interpret the concept of eternal youth, transformation and new beginnings.
