The exhibition aims to bring the voice of autistic children to the community and to spread their artistic souls.

An art exhibition titled "Heart For Autism" featuring works by renowned Vietnamese artists Dinh Cong Dat and Dinh Quan and 15 paintings by children with autism will open in Pan Pacific Hanoi from June 2 to 4.

The cultural event, co-organized by the hotel, Do Thuy Nga, founder of Hope Center and artist Dinh Cong Dat, aims to call the community's attention to the spiritual life of autistic children and create a sustainable future for them.

Children with autism may struggle to develop language skills. Singing and drawing are ways to communicate their thoughts and reveal their inner world to others. With the motivation to bring happiness to their lives, Doctor Do Thuy Nga, Director of Hope Center, has organized many special painting classes for them, which have been highly praised by other organizations and individuals.

Christoph Marcel Strahm, General Manager of Pan Pacific Hanoi, said that by hosting the art exhibition, the hotel aims to raise public awareness about autism and spread love and sympathy among locals for children with autism. "The event also demonstrates our hotel's long-term commitment to sustainability and improving the well-being of the community and society," he said.

Artist Dinh Cong Dat is known for his unique artworks, such as Buddha statues and lacquered ants. He is now a regular guest at the Hope Center.

As a teacher at Hope Center, he said: "Through the exhibition, I hope people can see the paintings from the perspective of the autistic children and open their hearts to enjoy the artwork".

To raise funds and call for community support for autistic children, the exhibition also displayed four artworks of "Flowers on Paper" by artist Dinh Cong Dat and one artwork of "Cat on a Lacquer Plate" by artist Dinh Quan. The fundraiser's opening will also feature the presence of young pianist Tran Khoi Viet on June 2.
