That art should be accessible to women in Saudi Arabia. That artists should be supported to showcase their work in a critically informed and supportive environment. That our shared and individual identities enrich our society and culture. That as creatives we have a safe space to think, discuss, reflect, learn, reach new philosophical grounds, challenge ourselves and challenge others in an informed and respectful manner. That knowledge and skills could be shared between artists and art enthusiasts to enrich the artistic and cultural community.
