Arab Resource Center For Popular Arts /AL-JANA

The Arab Resource Center for Popular Arts (ARCPA), commonly known as AL-JANA, was established in 1990 as a local non-governmental organization registered in Lebanon. ARCPA works with marginalized communities in Lebanon through documenting their enriching experiences and creative contributions and building on them, while at the same time enhancing the capacity of children and youth towards conflict transformation, active learning, and creative expression. Furthermore, the organization specializes in producing educational and cultural resources based on community experiences and creative contributions. Its programs vary to include interventions focusing on community development and social inclusion, resource mobilization, and active memory.

ARCPA envisions marginalized communities, empowered by their ability to overcome adversity and cultivate richer societies. From here stems its interventions aimed at promoting harmony and building bridges.
