“Hunnarshala and our artisan groups were invited by Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH) to restore four forts in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, a UNESCO City. We worked in collaboration with architect Eike Roswag to restore the centuries old mud forts. More than 150 artisans worked on this project and were handsomely remunerated for it.
This project is important to Hunnarshala because it illustrates the value of a master artisan and the role he has to play in the conservation of our heritage. It corroborates our core belief that there is immense value in conserving our traditional knowledge. “
