The meeting with Art Gown initiative was the closing discussion event dedicated to Our Scat Family photo exhibition.

Only due to respecting each other and observing human right for self-identity we can live up to our fullest potential, separately or all together,” Olena, representative of Art Gown parent initiative commented on the photo exhibition.
