Social cohesion and development through Arts and Culture: the Tiro Association

Share

We believe that culture and arts can bring together people and bring together different social groups by engaging everyone in various creative and artistic activities.”

The Tiro Association for Arts (TAA) is a non-governmental organization that works since 2014 on bringing together youth of different cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds to create an alternative and critical movement through arts and culture. Moreover, it works to foster culture in marginalized areas in the south of Lebanon to oppose the polarization, hatred and violence that are common for the areas it works in.
TAA believes culture and arts can be strong drivers of development, social cohesion and, ultimately, change. So, TAA aspires to provide young people in our community with independent spaces where they can freely express themselves, attend free artistic trainings and events.

Tiro promotes training courses, theater and music International festivals, arts exhibitions and community events.
