Art for Social Change: Nabad, the Nonprofit behind The Beirut Call

The Beirut Call, coming out this April 2021, is one of Nabad’s latest projects in Lebanon.

This anthology offers a collection of first-hand accounts by artists, scholars, poets, and activists exploring the aftermath of the Beirut port explosion on August 4th of 2020.

Over 20 voices have come together for this publication and proceeds from The Beirut Call will help NABAD continue to fund artists, art NGOs, and locally-owned creative enterprises in Lebanon.

For this publication, Elyssar Press has partnered with the nonprofit Nabad, an outgrowth of the Dar al-Kalima University. We hope this blog serves as a mere introduction to the powerful and critical work that Nabad enables.

Please share THIS ARTICLE with a friend or anyone who is interested in the way art and social change empower communities and mold a more equitable society.
