Vida is a young Iranian lifeguard. Popular on her team, she is determined to fight to be the one to participate in an international competition in Australia. However, when Sareh who is as fast and talented as her, joins the team, Vida will have to face an unexpected situation.
The drawing session is facilitated by Iranian artist Fatima Vahabi, one of the RAW collective of female refugee artists supported by our charity partner Karmabank. Through RAW, Karmabank provides microgrants, education and support to help artists fleeing war, discrimination and abuse reestablish their practice. Vahabi presented paintings at the Saatchi Gallery during Frieze Week. The programme includes performances by Ziba Karbassi, the Iranian Poet and a former director of PEN International Relations and chair of Exiled Writers Ink, and award-winning Iranian music scientist and Santur performer Dr. Peyman Heydarian. The programme is presented by Ayuna Berbidaeva, para triathlete, contemporary dancer & Sports & Performance Ambassador for Karmabank.
