The project 392rmeil393, in the heart of the art district of Beirut, is the brainchild of Alfred Sursock Cochrane helped by arts and crafts promoter Nayla Bassili.

Its aim is to provide a stage, a forum, a voice and a context to emerging creative talent that has not been roped into the traditional commercial or trendily intellectual gallery scene.

It is a non profit organization that hopes by virtue of its accessible and beguiling spaces to attract a new young audience to the delights of creativity and affordable artwork, as well as to collectors and curators to discover new artists, who have the full support of the gallery when needed but keeping their independence.

The spaces are also used by international creators whose brief is to collaborate with their local counterparts, inspire them as well as be inspired by the electric energy of the city .
