The event will inaugurate two campaigns led by the Higher Cause
1) Say Know to Drugs: The aim of this campaign is to spread information and raise awareness about drugs, drug use and drug abuse. The event will discuss the present state of drug use in Pakistan, evaluate policies currently in place, including the War on Drugs, and suggest alternatives including Harm Reduction and Rehab.
To this end, the event will host a presentation by the Higher Cause followed by a panel discussion.
2) Rehab For Everyone: In collaboration with the Gender Interactive Alliance and the Healing Home Rehab Center, the event will host the first public fundraiser for the first all Khwaja Sira Rehab ward.
We believe it is imperative to shift our national approach to Drugs from a criminal justice issue to a health issue. It is imperative to put Social Justice at the forefront of Drug Policy.

Creative Karachi Festival 2019
The Creative Karachi Festival is Karachi’s famous two-day festival of interdisciplinary arts and creativity, transformed into a weekend ‘mela’, held in the generous grounds of the Alliance Française. The CKF was initiated by our passionate founder Sabeen Mahmud who famously dubbed the festival as a ‘non-stop party in the park!’.
After CKF 2014 and 2016, T2F is now ready to launch the 3rd CKF to take forward our vision of enacting positive transformative change through art, creativity and dialogue. The two day festival promises to transform our tiny corner of the megalopolis of Karachi into a buzzing wonderland of music, art, food, creativity and fun through an exceptional line-up of visual artists, contemporary and traditional craftsmen, performers, writers, poets, dancers, film and documentary makers, qavvaals and musicians, comedians and storytellers and a unique outdoor eating experience with communal tables, food demos, and tastings!
