The event is an opportunity for expats and locals to get together at a workshop for art love and inspiration.
Artists have worked together to create art pieces varying from installation, recycled plastic waste, canvas, digital printing, and murals, featuring the beauty of the coastal city, land and people, ocean and plastic waste pollution.
