Create Syria is a collaboration between British Council and  Ettijahat- Independent Culture that aims to strengthen and enhance the expertise of Syrian artists and cultural actors and enable them to play increasingly active roles in improving the lives of individuals and communities affected by crisis. 

The programme supports individual artists, collectives and community-based organisations to collaborate on new initiatives and, through practical training and experience, build their technical and artistic skills in community settings

Now in its second edition, Create Syria  has supported 18 artistic initiatives in Lebanon since 2016 and collectively these projects have worked with more than 4000 people in communities across Lebanon. 

The projects below were supported in the 2018 edition of the programme.
