Last two days for Beirut Prints @ Al Souk (London)

 Design Week 

A short message to Londoners around here, and Lebanese living in London, and extraterrestrials hiding in London too. After a first week at the Graffik Gallery, Al Souk moved to the famous Tabernacle last Monday. The exhibition – held in the framework of the major Nour Festival – will end next Sunday. So you know what you have to do this week-end!

Beirut Prints is proud to showcase there some of its photographic production. You will also discover some Middle Eastern designers or artists such as Scene Beirut by Céline Khairallah, Azade by Céline Der Torossian, White sur white by Cyrille Najjar or Majnouna by Joumana Medlej (among others!).

See you there at the Tabernacle!

Writing your own quote about Beirut
Our wall is waiting for you, and for your creativity! As we'll be hosted by a book fair, let's be innovative... using words! You may pass by anytime to create and write down, on a A3 paper, a quote about our beloved Beirut.
