After a hard day of work, we can all use some sort of relaxation mechanism to soothe our minds. The murmuring sound of flowing water has always been considered to be therapeutic. The British Council Cultural Centre brings a one of a kind sculptured fountain exhibition, “Duets in metal and water” at our premise under the ExhiBritish Series.

This solo exhibition will showcase 12 unique metal sculptured fountains by Arham Ul Huq Chowdhury, a freelance artist, landscape and interior designer. These are mostly made with the scraps from the mobility aid making workshop of the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) in Savar. It aims to upcycle and bring in positive environmental effects of water features. Mr Arham has been an active volunteer of CRP since 2000. His interest and involvement with arts began from his childhood.

The British Council aims to align all of its activities to reach sustainable development goals (SDGs). In order to contribute to SDG 10: Reduce Inequalities, we are hosting this exhibition and also support relevant initiatives. All the proceeds from the disability awareness exhibition will go to the welfare funds of CRP who works for the development and empowerment of persons with disability.

We cordially invite you to visit this exclusive exhibition and lure your mind towards the creativity and enchanting calmness of these sculptured fountains.
