The Kuwait-based LOYAC Art and Performance Academy, a nonprofit organization working towards the overall development of the youth, is holding a virtual art fundraising exhibition to help rebuild the homes of those affected by the Beirut Port blast which tore through the capital on August 4, killing over 200 and injuring thousands more.
The online art fundraising exhibition, staged under the title “RISE UP BEIRUT” will be held from August 22 to September on Instagram and Facebook as a continuation of the same campaign held by LOYAC Lebanon, who have been actively assessing the homes and buildings that were destroyed by the explosion in order to offer rehabilitation efforts.

Reinforcing the role of art in building communities, the exhibition aims to “send a message of love and peace in a time marked by destruction” through the inclusion of artwork by artists from Kuwait, Lebanon as well as other international communities.
The proceeds will directly benefit towards the rebuilding and renovation of the homes of those affected by the tragic explosion.
