Most of the works in this exhibition were painted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The exhibition will run from 1-4 October at the National History Museum in Tirana. All the paintings are for sale and 30% of the proceeds go to supporting the charity Down Syndrome Albania.

October is Down Syndrome Awareness month and the exhibition is a great way to get involved in supporting local charities working with Albanian children.

DSA works hard to provide much needed care for children with Down Syndrom and thier families. It works towards facilitating integration into society, independence, and a high quality of life for those with the condition.

The event starts at 18:00 today.
