    ICESCO Celebrates Visit of Delegation of Creative Children With Disabilities to its Headquarters

    11 March 2022

    A delegation of creative children with trisomy (Down Syndrome) visited the Headquarters of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) in Rabat to attend the “Future Imagined by Young Artists” workshop. The event, which took place at the Hall of Islamic Solidarity at ICESCO headquarters, was held by the Organization as part of the celebration of Rabat, Culture Capital in the Islamic World for 2022 to learn about artists’ perceptions of the future of culture and creativity.

    Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, ICESCO Director-General (DG), greeted these children and received them in his office at the close of the event to welcome them, and together they engaged in a discussion on the children’s interests and artistic works, which they craft under the supervision of the personnel of the Moroccan Association for the Support and Assistance of People with Down’s Syndrome (AMSAT). AMSAT is a non-profit association established in 1981, which has been placed under the honorary chairmanship of HRH Prince Moulay Rachid since January 2003 and is working on the social inclusion of people with trisomy.

    The children were delighted to visit ICESCO’s Headquarters, tour its halls and facilities, and contemplate the paintings displayed in ICESCO’s Gallery for Contemporary Art.
