“The Beirut Call” presents diverse perceptions and expressions that speak to Lebanese in their homeland and in diaspora, but 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.
