Website “A Maid for each”: Following the documentary movie “A maid for each” (2016) by Lebanese film director Maher Abi Samra, RLS Beirut and Public Works together with Maher Abi Samra are creating a website on migrant domestic workers in Lebanon. Based on the research for the movie, but also exceeding that format, the website focuses on four crucial dynamics: the recruitment agency, the law and political power, the relationship between the employer and the maid, and the maid itself.

“The Creative Memory Of the Syrian Revolution”: This online project aims at documenting all forms of intellectual expression, both artistic and cultural, during the time of the Syrian revolution, by writing, recording, and collecting stories of the Syrian people, and the experiences through which they have regained meaning of their social, political, and cultural lives. The website also aims to enhance the impact of the artistic Syrian resistance, to reinforce its position in the revolution, to archive and spread the messages it expresses, and to help establish networks between groups and individuals,as well as links to the outside world. The project is supported by RLS Beirut.
