Lebanon, Reform

Be Sure To Check Out Beirut Design Week

If you are in Beirut at the moment, be sure not to miss the chance to check out the various talks, conferences, films, exhibitions, and workshops connected with Beirut Design Week. The quality of some of the projects is really stellar. You can find the program here.

I was thinking recently that I have moments of intense optimism and pessimism about Lebanon. The range of creative social entrepreneurship projects and civil society initiatives on display in Beirut Design Week is a reason for optimism, alongside the TV station-torching, highway-blocking, sectarian-toy-marketing, infrastructure-crumbling status quo.

Many great conversations with different folks this week… Will have lots to say soon.
