Huma Adnan hosts event celebrating craftsmanship to commemorate Women's Day
Huma Adnan celebrated the essence of empowered womanhood on 6 March 2022 at her humble abode. Showcasing a multitude of crafts at the event, made by artisans from Hunza and Afghanistan, the event was studded with media personalities, alongside the artisans themselves.
All of the guests adorned themselves in he stunning line of crafts that were on display. Apart from the crafts ornamented Huma's home, authentic Afghan food, made by the women from inclusive communities alongside whom she works, was served.
In addition to this, Martin Dawson, the Head of Mission at British Deputy High, was also in attendance. He showed immense appreciation, not only for the commemoration, but also Huma Adnan's green, socially responsible initiatives.
The vision behind such a commemorative display was to acknowledge and appreciate the dedicated effort put in by the artisans, and to also have them come to the forefront and take pride in their creations, explaining the narrative behind everything they make.
The program which Huma has initiated offers counseling with crafts. Stressing upon the importance of mental health, Huma believes that these women, many of whom unfortunately suffer from poor mental health, can heal with the employment of incentivized occupational therapy.
"For me, training in arts and crafts is the biggest revolutionary therapy," states Huma Adnan. "It empowers the artisans and gives them a sense of achievement and self fulfilment."
