The Danish-Arab Urban Arts Festival will be taking place on February 25, 2012, at a warehouse in Sin El Fil called Solea, starting in the afternoon until late at night.
The purpose of this festival is to gather young underground artists from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Denmark, and provide them with an imaginative and united platform through which the group and creativity can connect. By encouraging communication among different cultures, this festival aims to strengthen mutual understanding and tolerance, eventually contributing to a culture of peaceful coexistence in an open and democratic society.
Within the framework of the Danish EU Presidency, the event is a joint production between TARTE aux POIRES along with the Danish Embassy in Beirut, the Danish Center for Culture and Development (DCCD), and the Danish Institute in Damascus.
The Danish-Arab Urban Arts Festival will celebrate urban artistic culture in a one day event. With live performances by Danish and Arab musicians, contemporary dancers, graffiti and visual artists, poetic corridors, film makers and contemporary artist booths, collaborators will present their artistic interpretations of topics such as humanity, modernity and democratic development. The festival will also include an exhibition area displaying blogs, interactive artwork, photography, sculptures and comics.
