AISE’s own Middle School Art teacher, Mrs. Shereen Badr, was CEO and Curator of the recent World Art Forum in Cairo, Egypt’s first and largest international contemporary art event held at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. The World Art Forum sets itself apart from any other art fair or exhibition by adopting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) at the core of its mission. Communicating through the global language of art, WAF gathered 150 artists from more than 30 countries. Mrs. Badr explained that “through this event we connect art and sustainability for a better future because we see art as a solution for the world's problems. We invite organizations to join us to play a role in pushing forward the agenda of UN SDGs through art in Egypt and the world.”  These 17 goals are woven into the curriculum of AISE students including Mrs. Badr’s Art classes.  Mrs. Badr is planning for AISE students to take their works to a larger stage: “I will continue working with them on their skills until I have them presenting their art pieces in such a form as WAF.  That will make me a happy teacher.”
