The (س) Festival of Basmeh and Zeitooneh
- Beirut, Lebanon
In Arabic, the letter ( س ), pronounced 'seen', stands for the unknown variable in mathematical equations, much like the x in English. Through our Seen ( س ) festival of art and culture, Basmeh and Zeitooneh is seeking to shed light on the unknown yet prolific artistic talent found in marginalized communities in Lebanon. Our organization has been working within these communities for the past three years, and we are excited about giving these talents a chance to be seen.
We will be releasing the program step by step, and we invite you to join us in discovering the unknown talent and be part of this artistic adventure.
This project is accomplished within the frame of Create Syria: a project to empower Syrian art in exile – Ettijahat- Independent Culture, the British Council and International Alert.
With the support of Institut Français du Liban, Solidere and individual supporters.
