B-Beirut is the coming together of a new generation of creative and talented community subjects away from strict theories, confusing ideologies and academics. B-Beirut is a liberating front and a venue for articulating hidden silences. Not many of us have had the opportunity to assert ourselves, our identities and our talents. Not many of us have had the choice. B-Beirut offers a chance and a platform not only for discovering one’s talent and sharing one’s aspiration, skepticisms and concerns but also extends itself towards making voices heard in a city which has always been regarded as carrying a cultural and intellectual weight world-wide. Today, we owe Beirut to live up to its name which has been vandalized by years of war and plunged into centuries of amnesia and silence.
