This year marks the 26th annual Art on the Avenue, an event to “celebrate the community’s diversity through the arts.” Organizers are expected more than 50,000 people to attend this event, where they are greeted by more than 300 artists, musicians, and food vendors. Noura and her friend Grace Barrett will share a booth, and they are two of the three young artists selected to have their own booths at this year’s Art on the Avenue.
According to Alexandria Gazette Packet, "If you ask eleven-year-old Noura Barka what she did with all the time she had on her hands in 2020, she’d tell you she leveraged those hands in a big way – to create all kinds of crafts and artwork. She will be selling a lot of her productions at Art on the Avenue, a multicultural arts and music festival that will take place in Alexandria’s historic Del Ray neighborhood on Saturday, Oct. 2. Noura, a sixth grader at Stratford Landing Elementary School, has actually been preparing for this moment since before the world’s period of quarantine, and she can’t wait to show off what she’s been working on."
As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Noura’s favorite pieces to craft have definitely been the greeting cards, which she predicts will be her hottest selling items.
