By:  Zareef Baloch

GWADAR:  Over 60 local artists participated in the first-ever wall art competition held in district Gwadar on 4th August by Baamsar in collaboration with the district government. The event was sponsored by Brighto Paint and Consultant Group (CG) and it was held at the Padizer Marine Drive along the route from Gwadar Airport to Gwadar Free Zone and PC Hotel.

The theme for the first edition was ‘Colours of Gwadar’ on which the artists were asked to create their art, and were later judged by Mohsin Shaffi a local artist and Hassan from brigh to paints. The event was graced by many reputable personalities i.e. DC Capt. Waseem, Naveed Kalamathi ex minister PHE, M Asim Twana DG PND GPA and so on. The honorable judges and guests appreciated the organizer for initiating this important concept in Gwadar and stated that the artists of Gwadar are very talented and skilled, it’s just they need a proper platform to show their creativity to the world.

The main objective of the wall art competition was to promote art and create a safe place for local artists to display their creative work publicly. Baamsar believes that such art competitions are essential in today’s competitive world. “Through this competition, we aimed to encourage our local artists and creative individuals to engage in art which will help them to confidently represent their creation to the world and promote Pakistan’s, especially Gwadar’s cultural heritage,” said the CEO of Baamsar Naseer Ahmed.

The effectiveness of such art program cannot be denied as Art programs encourage students to be creative and use their imagination which in result enhances their skills like communication, problem solving, and critical thinking.

Wall art competitions also offered an ideal opportunity for local artists to network and drew visitors from all walk of life.

As the theme of the competition was ‟colors of Gwadar‟ so the work of all of the artist was exactly reflecting the given theme. Artists were very much excited as they didn’t have such exposure in their life before. They thanked the organizers for providing them this wonderful opportunity to represent their work and talent and assured that they will be given such learning opportunities in future as well.

Further the way the event was graced with the magnifying performance of the singers and other performers and finally the event concluded with the formal prize distribution ceremony for the winners.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
