Seenaryo is a non-profit theatre and arts organisation founded in 2014 that works with Syrian and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, in collaboration with artists from the UK, Syria and Lebanon.
We believe that theatre and artistic production has the ability to sow a political seed. We believe that international governments are not doing enough to address the scale of global displacement, and that responsibility for the world’s refugees lies with the international community, not solely with their host country. And we believe in the importance of independent art projects, free of explicit development priorities, in providing a space for autonomy and creative empowerment.
Seenaryo works in partnership with two grassroots organisations, led by and for refugees in Lebanon: Women Now, an organisation that works in Syria, Turkey and Lebanon towards the social, economic and political participation and empowerment of women and children, and the Yaabad Scout Troupe, a self-organised group of scouts in Shatila camp, Beirut.
