Overview

The Beirut Call brings together individuals who think, do and create to inspire and communicate diverse approaches in facing wars, crises, instability, and despair; people who are turning to the arts and culture as a way to engage audiences through deep and emotional connections to bring about change, and who are imbuing their work with social and political messaging to advance the issues about which they feel most passionate. The Beirut Call presents diverse perceptions and expressions that speak to Lebanese in their homeland and in diaspora, but it also transcends the borders of Lebanon as contributors address glocal (local-global) issues-war, peace, memory, history, identity, creativity, cultural resistance, resilience, artistic activism, human rights, feminism, social justice, intercultural dialogue...-which can be discussed in a range of settings such as in schools and universities, arts & culture workshops and learning programs, youth and community centers, women's groups, NGOs, as well as alternative education programs. Proceeds will help Nabad continue to fund artists, arts NGOs, and small creative enterprises' projects in Lebanon.

About the Author

After a decade spent in the business world, Roula Salibi decided the time had come to embrace the true calling of her heart: the calling of art. She dedicated the next years of her life to learning all she could, including taking a series of intensive courses at ESMOD Beirut and imbuing herself in every aspect of the art world. While the materials Salibi uses in her work are conventional, accessible, and simple, the results are anything but. Geometric forms, which are a constant thread throughout her work, combine with the earthy, unfinished feel of rough gemstones. There is depth and tactile beauty in her silverwork, with each finished piece exhibiting its own distinctive personality. After exhibiting in Paris, Milan, London, New York, and Dubai, Roula Salibi's pieces have extended into the European and Middle East markets. Online platforms have also expanded her work worldwide.
