Euro News: Lebanese art showcases rich and complex history

An article and video showcasing APEAL’s latest exhibition of contemporary Lebanese art in London

“APEAL’s president Rita Nammour commented that “ we’ve been rebuilding Lebanon; Beirut is being rebuilt. But I think the cultural reconstruction of Lebanon is extremely important. Art is a way to get our young people get together and get beyond our cultural and religious differences.”

“The main reason behind creation of APEAL is projecting the cultural image of Lebanon. It’s also promoting young talents beyond conventional borders and onto larger screens. It’s helping them expose themselves outside Lebanon. It’s also commissioning public art.” (from the article cited below)
