Bookmark and Share

Nomad Gallery will be inaugurating their new branch on Saturday, December 13 at the Saidpur Village - a quaint, natural haven about 700 metres off Margalla Road (opposite sector F-6/2). Having worked with the local potters in the village since the early eighties and training women of the community in craft development through skill training workshops leading to income generation with the aim of creating a level of empowerment, it is a matter of pride and a natural transition for Nomad Gallery to be pioneers in leading the way - another effort by Nomad Gallery to make Islamabad as a cultural and 'happening' place by supporting each other as part of a committed, vibrant community.
