On October 10th at 10am BST, a series of six films will air on createday.org to celebrate the creativity of Lebanese designers to highlight the need for continuing support to rebuild Beirut, following the August blasts. 
How does disaster impact creativity? As the Lebanese capital struggles to recover from the recent explosions, its designers explore how they can continue to create in the midst of chaos.

In this series of short films, curated by Rue Kothari and Mira Hawa for London Craft Week’s Create Day, the beauty and craft of six distinctive designers are exposed to showcase the wealth of Levantine creativity that must be preserved.

The objective is to ensure that the international community continue to help and support the recovery of the design industry in Beirut.

"We had originally approached over 30 designers to participate in this project. So many told us that their ateliers had been destroyed, along with their archives, and several were suffering personal injury and loss. The challenges were simply too great. We truly thank them for their consideration and are grateful to these final six for having produced or collated footage for Create Day - in order to keep the spotlight on Beirut as it continues the fundraising effort to rebuild the city." - Rue Kothari + Mira Hawa

The Designers:
Sayar Garibeh
Anastasia Nysten
Karen Chekerdjian
Bokja
Cynthia Raffoul
Anastasia Elrouss
