Following the exhibition, a feedback event took place at Canvas Gallery, in Karachi. Sumbul Khan moderated a panel discussion consisting of Gasworks alumni, Basir Mahmood, Seema Nusrat and Muhammed Zeeshan. The artists shared their personal and artistic experiences during their stay at the residency.
