What began as an idea between two Lebanese dreamers on a subway train in Brooklyn in 2001, blossomed into a global art collective they named ' xanadu*, a beautiful place '. Their mission was to encourage Arab artists to express themselves and exhibit their work, in what was one of the most difficult times in history for an Arab to be living in New York City.

xanadu*, now based in Beirut, is dedicated to supporting underrepresented artists to produce and exhibit their work in the realms of art exhibitions, publications, poetry and music performances.

We stand firm to our belief that rt can make positive changes in the world around us and hope to inspire artists from around the world to take personal initiatives in order to make this world a truly beautiful place.
