On the inaugural day, IIyaas Rizvi, Founder EdRAAK, said that this event is actually based on the Milaad and autumn season. “As coincidentally this year’s Milaad coincided with the autumn season, so we tried to blend the two separate events under one banner of Mashq-e-Paa’eez: Ishq-e-Nabi (SAW).” Ilyaaz Rizvi told Kashmir Observer.
The event has been divided into four categories: Mashq (Calligraphy window), Aks(Visual Window), Dusst’(Fine art and painting window) and Harf (Prose and poetic window).
Notably, it's been more than a decade since EdRaak has tried to engage students in creative pursuits of arts and aesthetics in the valley through its workshops and exhibitions.
Through the EdRaak initiative many disadvantaged students of the valley have been learning contemporary arts, mystic arts, calligraphy, writing and several other creative things.
The Mashq-e-Paa’eez: Ishq-e-Nabi(SAW) event is the fourth season of exhibition and workshop that EdRAAk has conducted in recent years.
The event is completely a student-specific event and the participants of the event are mainly the students from the school of Fine Arts and a few high school students.
