Design alumnus runs LGBT+ fundraiser and art auction for Beirut

Alumnus Daniel Nasr (BA Design 2015) is one of the organisers of Rebuilding Beirut with Pride, an art auction and crowdfunding initiative to support LGBT+ communities in Beirut after the explosion that affected the Lebanese capital on 4 August 2020.

An online auction selling artwork and prints submitted by artists around the world will take place on 22 August; at least three other Goldsmiths alumni have pieces on sale in the collection. The evening will also include performances live-streamed from a limited attendance in-person event at The Bell pub in London. You can get tickets for the event via EventBrite. 

Art sales are also taking place via the Instagram account, RBP.auction. Any artists wanting to get involved are welcome to get in touch.

A crowdfunding page is open on GoFundMe to gather donations for rebuilding Beirut and supporting all impacted communities.
