Our students are the beating heart of the initiative. They come from diverse backgrounds and commute to the studio every weekday from all over Lebanon, including Palestinian refugee camps, Saida, Chouf, Tripoli, and Bourj Hammoud. Our students share an aptitude for design and demonstrate a commitment to hard work. Creative Space Beirut offers these talented young individuals a unique opportunity into design education and the design industry.
