Dear colleagues and friends, kindly spread the word about our upcoming anthology. “The Beirut Call. Harnessing Creativity for Change” presents diverse perceptions and expressions that speak to Lebanese in their homeland and in the diaspora, and it also transcends the borders of Lebanon as contributors address glocal issues—war, peace, memory, history, identity, creativity, cultural resistance, resilience, artistic activism, human rights, feminism, social justice, intercultural dialogue…—which can be discussed in a range of settings such as in schools and universities, arts & culture workshops and learning programs, youth and community centers, women’s groups, NGOs, as well as alternative education programs.
Proceeds will help Nabad continue to fund artists, arts NGOs, and small creative enterprises’ projects in Lebanon.
A special thank you to Elyssar Press, Dar Al-kalima University College of Arts and Culture, and our anthology’s esteemed contributors: Mitri Raheb Roula Salibi Joelle Sfeir Nada Raphael Roula-Maria Dib Roula Azar Douglas.
