The Dalieh Campaign and Save Beirut Heritage designed a city-wide program to take place during the Ministry of Culture’s “Heritage Week” in May 2017 and the Beirut Design Week 2017, that includes talks and public discussions, site interventions and installations, school workshops and site visits, concerts and street fairs. The program aims to recognize citizens and city users as active partners in the battle to save the city’s heritage, and to enable them to voice their concerns about the market-led developments and laisser-faire governance that are changing the character and identity of Beirut. In collaboration with The Civil Campaign to Protect the Dalieh of Raouche, Temporary Art Platform invited eight contemporary artists to intervene on-site.
Participating artists: Omar Fakhoury, Mustapha Jundi, Raymond Gemayel, Ieva Saudargaité, Nadim Mishlawi, Pascal Hachem & Rana Haddad (200gr.), Ghassan Maasri
