Art for Humanity" – a project aimed at creating humane spaces in various clinical settings in Sri Lanka – is now in its fourth year. This collaboration between Ferozsons Laboratories Limited and the University of Kelaniya in Sri Lanka is a testament to the commitment of Ferozsons to create livelier spaces for patients.
A number of medical institutes across Sri Lanka have benefited from these artistic interventions in clinical settings. This project is led by the Visual Arts & Design and Performing Arts Unit, Department of Fine Arts at the university.
This year, National Institute of Medical Health and St. Joseph’s School for Deaf and Differently were targeted to carry out these projects. A catalog was prepared by the students for the exhibition of art work that was held before implementing the art work in the St. Joseph's School for Deaf and Differently able children located at Ragama, Sri Lanka. The exhibition generated inspiring and positive feedback from the school and the public (the parents and the visitors as well).
Mrs. Prashanti, the coordinator of this project said, “The heart breaking scene was that all or many of the kids were enjoying and learning by looking at touching the art work. I just thought if you were there... to witness how much your effort has blossomed and how much we were blessed to support that mission to help community through the medium of art.
Thank you so much Mr. Osman for your priceless thoughts and mission to enhance the quality of human life in terms of sustaining productive skills and creating a society with equal opportunities.”
