Check out this beautiful film showcasing how artist Tom Young transformed the Grand Sofar Hotel in Lebanon into a centre of creative education for children and students.

Young is famously known for being the first artist to exhibit his work at the famous 19th century Beirut Mansion “Maison Rose” between November 2014 and January 2015. This marked the first time the famous house was open to the public after decades, and was meant to showcase his work in this much loved cultural landmark and raise awareness on the importance of preserving heritage sites in Lebanon. His Sofar exhibition attracted thousands of art lovers and includes a series of art workshops for local school children, orphans, refugees and University students.

Enjoy the movie!
