Civic Education Through Arts & Sports
April and May 2016
The Chain Effect worked with three organizations, Min Ila, Development and Beyond and Frame to promote civic knowledge and civic engagement among 40 students from three public schools across the country. The project allowed the youth to explore new activities and express themselves through creative, alternative ways, like photography documentation, street art, basketball and city cycling. Through a street art workshop, The Chain Effect worked the students on a large scale participatory mural in the city that covered a variety of themes. In our second session, we organized a tailored bike ride through Beirut, visiting various cultural and historic sights and different neighborhoods. The students documented their journey and the city using their phone cameras under four main themes: Voice, Diversity, Public Spaces, Citizen. We introduced the students to an everyday cyclist and athlete, who inspired them with his cycling journey, and how he overcame day to day challenges.
