Yesterday, we again had a series of very successful events. Our guest Dutch Designers gave a talk on each of their respective design fields in the Beirut Souks and explained in detail about their wish to collaborate more actively with the Arab World through their work.

Rowan Bain also gave a talk on International Design in the Victoria & Albert Museum London in Dawawine, followed by a discussion with Najla el Zein and Maurice Asso.

The day also featured many exhibitions and workshops along Gemmayze, which allowed participants to stroll at their leisure down the street, exploring the designers’ work along the way. The workshops included a wide variety of activities, ranging from accessory making to learning about Financial tools to start and expand your business.

The day was then rounded off at Le Gray with a fantastic designer dinner!

We look forward to seeing you in Hamra today!
