So the theme is very interesting and from the works that appear at this exhibition, it can be seen that the female teachers from the Creative Industry Faculty are very polite, maybe because they take values ??from Harmony, Excellence, and Integrity, “She said.
Noorca also said that through the works displayed at this exhibition, according to her, women seemed to have made peace with the city and had united without any resistance. Women and the City coexist together in the works that are produced.
