Seven domestic helpers have participated in the Soles & Stories initiative to showcase their artistic talents. Each of these participants have customised a pair of plain shoes to express their experiences – their joys, pains, struggles and dreams.

These will be accompanied by portraits shot by Emirati photographer Amani Shali.

Soles & Stories is a joint initiative between FleishmanHillard Middle East and the Sameness Project to promote social inclusion. The free event will be hosted at Gulf Photo Plus at Alserkal Avenue on May 24 from 7pm onwards.
