The Iranian National Commission for UNESCO will hold Afghan Art Week from December 12-18.

The cultural event will be held on the theme of “My Beloved, Where Are You?”, according to IRNA.

The director of the commission, Hojjatollah Ayyubi, Afghan Ambassador to Tehran Abdolghafor Lival, and the head of Kabul University Mohammad Osman Babury will be making speeches during the opening ceremony, which will go online on the Instagram page of the commission.

The commission will organize the virtual exhibit to express its sympathy with the victims of the Daesh terrorist attack on Kabul University in early November.

The showcase will put on view paintings, miniatures, photos, graphic design, calligraphy, traditional musical instruments and artworks in other media.

Several gunmen attacked Kabul University, shooting at students in their classrooms and clashing with security forces for hours.

At least 22 people were killed and 22 others wounded when gunmen stormed the university in a brutal assault.

Some of the students had calls from their mothers and fathers. One of the victims had 142 missed calls, and there was a final message that read, “My beloved, where are you?”
