I AM KARACHI day was a celebration of the city and it’s people held at Frere Hall on 26th of March 2016. The celebrations of the day and the activities leading up to it are part of a larger city-wide movement that aims to inculcate hope, pride and ownership in the citizens of Karachi by reclaiming public spaces through sports, arts, culture and dialogues.
The event was a grand equalizer with citizens from all areas and strata uniting to mark the occasion, as could be seen in a visualization activity where residents of Karachi could mark their homes on a giant map.
The inaugural I AM KARACHI AWARDS have established themselves as the only civic responsibility and diversity awards exclusively for residents of the city. I AM KARACHI Awards recognize visionary individuals who have shown inspirational resilience, hope, pride and determination. The award function was headlined by a spell binding rock-symphonic version of the national anthem by Sounds of Kolachi with the talented youth of Karachi. Award winning pop stars Sara Haider, Zoe Viccaji and traditional singers were also showcased at the event.
The event was managed and executed by Polaris with PR & Social Media by Mindmap Communications.
