Wall of Tolerance

After the tragic Gulshan-e-Iqbal park incident, the Wall of Tolerance is an initiative taken by a group of young Lahoris to fight the extremist mindset through art. The group painted messages of peace on the walls of Gulshan-e-Iqbal park, in order to counter the growing negativity through some positive art —  and  make Lahore a little brighter after the tragedy. We are extremely proud of these young painters and applaud them in their efforts to spread a message of peace.


If you are looking for some short-term measures to get rid of your everyday pressures, then the Phuljari stress-relieving colouring book is what you need to go for. It’s an attempt by Azmeena Alidina and Ema Anis to celebrate and spread the brilliance of Pakistani art while providing people with a soothing colouring experience.
