Hep Beirut’s Creatives Rebuild Their Businesses

Lindsay Judge   |   15 - 08 - 2020

The Beirut explosion devastated so many businesses in the city and the creative industry was particularly hard hit. In a single moment, their livelihoods, life achievements and businesses disappeared.


In order to support the restoration and survival of this sector, a group of creative industry professionals have joined forces to share resources for the launching of a crowdfunding campaign.


Working in consultation with the affected designers, the fund has been able to identify the assistance needed as well as the amounts required for each of the 39 applicants.


With the unified support of Starch Foundation, Slow Factory Foundation, Fondation Saradar, Bureau Des Créateurs, Maison Pyramide, Faux Consultancy and Roni Helou, the fundraiser will benefit Beirut’s independent designers and artists whose damages amounted to over $850,000.


Beirut’s creative talent is not only essential to the city as a beacon of hope and reflection of Lebanon’s unique culture but also a vital industry supporting the livelihood and employment across Lebanon.
