We are looking forward to the upcoming academic partnership with one of the oldest Lebanese art colleges of the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (alba) in Beirut starting in April 2019. Over the next two years, we will collaborate on a project funded by the DAAD to work on "socially committed art", "urban design", "fashion design and sustainability" and "civil society" with students from both universities.

As early as July 2019, we expect students and teachers from Lebanon to attend the first joint workshop "Socially Engaged Art" with experts from the politically-ecologically active and "world-shaping" Berlin art scene!
