This is a wonderful opportunity for Ali, thanks to the fantastic team at Depot Artspace, who are hosting the exhibition. Framing his beautiful calligraphy works is a financial challenge for Ali. A number of good frames have been donated, and a very generous framing company has offered to make the works as professionally presented as possible for just the cost of materials.

Ali is also being supported by Art for Change, New Zealand Red Cross and Auckland Refugee Family Trust (Ali was the first refugee that ARFT brought into New Zealand, 5 years ago).

Art for Change are seeking funds to pay for the framing for Ali's exhibition, and also to help cover other costs associated with holding the exhibition, including catering for the opening event, and the printing of posters and flyers.
