During Abu Dhabi Art in November 2014, Minbart celebrated 3 days of art and our space transformed itself into a live working studio. Popular UK shoe brand Flossy served as the canvas and customers were invited to color, paint and draw on shoes. The event brought together our customers from all ages & nationalities who reside in Abu Dhabi, Dubai & Sharjah and all got their creative juices flowing! Shoe sizes ranged from 24-45 and 3 design options were available for all levels of creativity. Over 250 people walked away (pun intended!) with a mini masterpiece of their own and a percentage of sales over the course of 3 days were donated to the Friends Of Cancer Patients.
In November 2015, we decided to celebrate art again by inviting our tribe to draw and paint on canvas bags and Venetian masks. We have also collaborated with 6 artists & illustrators to showcase their beautiful art at the store. Minbart truly acted like an artistic creative platform that encouraged artists to sell their artworks and educate our customers about the creators and their inspiration. The feedback was overwhelming and our tribe has truly enjoyed being creative all over again.
