About TERDAD 2021
On the 4th of August, 2020, Beirut was struck by two massive explosions that caused unprecedented damage and a widespread loss of lives and livelihoods. In a country already reeling from the social and economic crisis and the devastating effects of the pandemic, the cultural and artistic sector was hit in the heart. In cinemas, galleries, theatres, museums, learning spaces, sound recording studios, and cultural spaces, the damages were gigantic. While cultural activities were being suspended, a talented generation of young Lebanese artists was left with only one hope: leaving.
In this gloomy context was born TERDAD.
Created by UNESCO under “Li Beirut”, its flagship initiative for the city recovery, TERDAD – or RESONANCE in English-, will allow the creative echoes of Beirut to resonate again and shut the sound of the explosions, over the course of 3 days of public cultural activities in the heart of the city, in the schools and cultural spaces of Mar Mikhael, Gemmayze, Quarantina, and Sursock. The event unites 5 local cultural associations that propose different forms of art, after having provided them with urgent financial support to the local artists through a co-production program. On the 2nd, then 3rd, and 4th of July, and as an integral part of “Li Beirut”, TERDAD will mark the resumption of the creative activities of the city, much needed today to regain a sense of normalcy, a sense of life.
