Fund for the safeguard of art and collections in Beirut
Starting the restoration of the decorative surface and interiors:
Help us restore 78 damaged decorative elements, for a total of 130 m² of white marble.
When thinking about Beirut, what springs to mind is the extraordinary resilience of its inhabitants, who have always been able to recover from the multiple dramatic events which have marked the long history of the country. It is this strength of character and this energy that RestART Beirut wishes to showcase in its projects, whose main purpose is not only restoring the past but also stimulating the artistic life of Beirut in the near future.
Our mission is to sustainably protect the invaluable cultural heritage of Beirut, to harness it as a vector to ensure socio-economic benefits for the country and stimulate the artistic future of Beirut through cultural exchange and education.
The renovation of the Sursock Palace’s collections and its transformation into a Center for Culture, Education and Artistic dissemination
The current owners of the palace wish to undertake the restoration of the palace and its collections with a view to transforming what is now a private residence into a museum open to the public. This place of beauty, refinement and rich history would be shared with the Lebanese people and international visitors and will allow them to learn about and take pride in a Golden Age which they have the power to revive...
