We birthed Zayraqoun in 2019, during the Lebanese uprisings, from the collective will to explore new ways of co-creation, self organizations, sharing of resources.
We aim to create and innovate opportunities for closeness to people where we can rethink reality and relationships through transparency, music, movement, visual arts, circus arts, play experiences, puppets and strengthening our relationship with the earth.
Zayraqoun activates the right to emancipation of thought and body in an educational context and in public places through marches, performances, interventions and workshops.
