To Paint & Sip This Valentines.

February 09, 2022 – Dubai, United Arab Emirates: This Valentine’s, artisan speciality coffee roastery and café, RAW Coffee Company is set to welcome Dubai based grief support group, Chocoholics and 4get-me-not, a UAE based social enterprise that spearheads efforts to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). RAW will play host to the second art exhibition organized by Chocoholics, titled “Raw Emotions On Canvas” on the 14th of February 2022.

Raw Emotions On Canvas” explores the realm of grief with a special focus on celebrating the lives of lost loved ones and the experiences shared with them. The event aims to provide Chocoholics participants (seniors and caregivers) who are living with grief, a safe environment to share, connect and heal through their artworks.

Open to the public and free of charge, the art exhibition will commence at RAW with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10AM. All those in attendance will get the opportunity to meet and greet the Chocoholics group who will showcase their 30 acrylic paintings. There’s a personal story behind each art and expect seniors to happily narrate their experiences.  

Artist, Diana Shaykh will be present to curate the artworks as well as conduct a short painting session with the group. Simultaneously, there will be journaling and poetry reading on grief and love.

One of RAW’s mandates has always been to discover unique ways and means for building and supporting the local community. A growing favourite local spot, RAW has been invested in providing a platform for artists, who may need or require support.

Proceeds from any of the paintings sold will help support and subsidize the Chocoholics bi-monthly grief support meetings and art materials for painting. All paintings and their prices can be viewed on www.4get-me-not.org.
