Are you a Lebanese creative, artist, designer or company looking to expand in France ?

Join #HowMADisBeirut for a chance to win a $1000 collaboration with free online workshops and visibility in France!

MAD’s initiative How MAD is Beirut, launched after the Beirut blast, highlights the determination of Lebanese creatives of all ages and provides them with a long-needed source of income through the digital promotion and sales of their creations in France.

 After a first successful milestone in 2020 with 50 Beirut creatives, MAD is now extending a call for applications for 200 Lebanese designers and artists who wish to structure their business and develop it in France. MAD’s initiative and support will unlock the digital transition of Lebanese creatives and increase exports of locally made artworks and creations.

This call for applications will help us identify 200 beneficiaries who will have access to digital tools including a free annual subscription to the MAD platform to sell their creations and a series of online workshops to help them in their digital transition and link them to French partners and networks.

From those 200 beneficiaries, MAD will select the 20 best performing artists and designers who will be promoted in MAD’s French content, both digitally and physically. In addition, 5 Lebanese creatives will be selected to develop a limited collection and collaboration with MAD which will specifically target the French market.
