'Art Against Discrimination' Initiative
The 'Art Against Discrimination' initiative, funded by the European Endowment for Democracy, spans 12 months and targets 80 youths in Baalbek-Hermel of Syrian and Lebanese backgrounds, offering them artistic training in music, photography, and more, alongside civil education in conflict resolution and leadership. This effort aimed to unify diverse youth, fostering peace and coexistence while instilling artistic and civic skills for future leadership. The project empowers these young individuals to express their identities creatively, tackle social issues, and inspire positive change in their community, as a result bridging divides and building relationships among youth and communities. Activities include photography, music, and civil workshops, resulting in a short film and a photo exhibition showcasing the youth's perspective on their community.
