Campaign successfully funded on: 15 Jul,2015
Neighbours far and wide, local and international artists, amateurs and professionals, children and adults alike, come together to transform an everyday Beirut neighbourhood into an enchanting backdrop where people from all walks of life come together to share and participate in quality artistic evenings.
Our forth edition is already in the making!
Preparations are on the way for Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran 2015 that will take place on the 28, 29 and 30th of August, on the Vendome Staircase in Mar Mikhail (Beirut). Many organisations, structures and associations already responded positively to this initiative, organized by Collectif Kahraba, a lebanese non-profit cultural association.
This year our program will include over 40 artists, amateurs, and volunteers from Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, France, Spain, Italy and Germany, who will come together to turn stairs, balconies, windows, rooftops and gardens into stages for theatre, puppetry, storytelling, visual arts, music and contemporary dance.
We anticipate over 3000 spectators to attend this unique event.
It’s important to mention that this festival is not a profit generator. In fact, all our participants ( artists, organizers, designers, chefs, etc…) offer their services, because they believe in the social importance of this one-of-a-kind experience.
Your contribution is vital as there are a lot of inescapable expenses (believe us, we’ve tried) that need to be covered. We need to reach our set goal to simply:
Third goal: 15000$
If you cannot support Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran financially, there are a number of other ways that you can get involved:
After three successful runs, the importance of this festival is only made more evident. In a divided and tense social context, it is essential that Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran succeed in continuing to build bridges and to create links between different members and participants of our society. We need to nurture imagination, curiosity and authenticity, in order to make manifest a culture of peace and diversity.
Because it is important to offer quality performances for free.
Because it is essential to share moments of beauty amongst family and community.
Because live art is a beautiful space for encounters and living together.
Because art and culture are two necessary ingredients for human dignity and the building of our societies.
We welcome you to come take part!
