Syri-Arts Exhibition Beirut


The foundation’s organizers’ first act was a successful charitable arts auction. Donors from around the world raised one million dollars for the cause of aiding disenfranchised Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Syria-Arts was held at the Beirut International Exhibition and Leisure Center (BIEL) in October 2013, with the intention of creating a platform whereby the wealth of artistic creativity in the region could be mobilized for a worthy cause. The auction raised funds for the official establishment of the Kayany Foundation.
