The collaboration between Peace of Art and PAX resulted in a transformative project that empowered young women and men to address religious and belief-based discrimination across social, legal, and digital spheres. Supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the initiative championed Freedom of Religion or Belief (ForB), encouraging dialogue, civic engagement, and equal rights regardless of background.

Overall Objectives: 
Participants had open dialogue with local and religious leaders. Innovative methods were employed to raise awareness about FoRB (Freedom of Religion and Belief), including the organization of four impactful round tables where youth engaged with religious leaders from different sects. The project also included 3 Murals painted in 3 different corners of Lebanon (Ain, Tripoli, Beirut) highlighting equality and acceptance. A documentary was produced to showcase the context of FoRB in Lebanon hosting religious leaders and experts from around Lebanon, alongside a comprehensive training curriculum covering advocacy, leadership, and communication skills. This collaboration underscored the potential of art to unite diverse communities and empower youth as effective advocates for change.
