Fomma – DHA Art Centre

Work is progressing on the refurbishment of the Fomma – DHA Art Centre in Zamzama Park, Defence Phase 5. Some additional funding is being sought for gallery – quality light fitting and airconditioning equipment. This has meant some delay in the renovation work, designed and being supervised, on honorary basis, by architect Yawar Abbas Jilani and Arcop Associates. Meanwhile a senior media executive, Mrs. Nighat Mir, has agreed to be Honorary Director of the Centre, and is consulting with a cross – section of the art community in Karachi to formulate tentative plans of activities to be initiated as soon as the centre becomes available for a “soft” opening sometime in September / October 2006. A formal launch is planned for sometime in December 2006/ January 2007, and the relevant details are being worked out by the Fomma committee specially setup for this purpose, with trustee Anwar Rammal as the convener, and trustees Abu Shamim Ariff, Imran Mir Azam Ali and Najma Husain as Members.
