Enabling the voices of refugees to be heard through art

Seenaryo is a non-profit arts and education organisation that works with Syrian and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. We empower refugees by enabling them to create high-quality art. We build professional capacity among communities by training young people in facilitation and artistic skills.

Lebanon hosts the most refugees per capita of any country in the world. Hosting over 1.15 million refugees from Syria since 2011, on top of the half-million Palestinians who were already living in the country before then, refugees in Lebanon make up about a quarter of the population.

In this context of displacement, Seenaryo believes that there is an urgent need for cultural projects and arts education amongst refugees in Lebanon to support personal development, to foster social cohesion, to allow people’s stories to be heard, and to train a future generation of leaders. We work principally with our main partners Women Now, a Syrian grassroots civil society organisation based in the Bekaa Valley.

We urgently need your support in order to implement our year-round programmes. We appreciate any amount you can give, however big or small.

Seenaryo is a Restricted Fund under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund, Registered Charity number 1099682.
