'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.

الأهداف العامة: 
The activities in this phase have been focusing on building youngsters skills to picture, explore, define and represent their identities through arts. These activities were oriented to encourage youth to identify a variety of social issues they face in their community, and integrate them in their class works through photographs and short movies.The activities contributed to empower the youth within a dynamic participation in their social environment in a way that fosters critical thinking, research, and creativity, and that aims to provide inspiring models of active young leaders who are trying to create a better community based on peace and acceptance. The most important objective that the project is achieving from the beginning of its first phase is bringing youth from different backgrounds to interact, connect, work together and build sustainable relations which leads to reconciliation among the youth, and on a bigger scale among communities that have been apart for a very long time. Barriers among youngsters are being broken, and new bridges are being built.
