January 2016 – December 2016
In 2016, a new partnership under the name of “Sawa: together for a better future” was established between arcenciel and the European Union.
The project seeks to promote intercultural dialogue between 400 Lebanese and Syrian youths in Beirut, the Beqaa, and North Lebanon. The participants, aged between 12 and 15, are being given the chance to engage in a dialogue with each other, using art as a medium.
arcenciel has been holding workshops of various forms and working with scholars to produce a documentary film on the project.
The film will be broadcasted to 2000 community members including parents, teachers, and residents within the regions in question, thus raising awareness and increasing the participation of people from different walks of life.
