Karaj is Beirut’s first non-profit media lab for experimental arts, architecture and technology.
As a unique transdisciplinary platform in the Middle East, Karaj will forge a community of DIY and opensource creators who will channel local frustrations into productive and creative experiences. Karaj will become an active node on an international network of labs, with a larger goal of advancing Lebanon and the Arab World as a region at the forefront of creativity, technological innovation, and democratic change.
