Dawn.com gives you a sneak preview to know what to expect at Port Grand Culture & Arts where an event was held on Saturday. Port Grand is a multi-layered social space in the epicenter of historical Karachi, and is built around the premise of promoting positivity in the city and preserving its heritage; the restored Napier’s bridge within Port Grand is an example of this vision.
