Crowd funding for injured and damaged people in Lebanon

People in Lebanon are facing a tragic situation on political, economic and environmental levels. Créations en urgence is an NGO based in Marseille – France and supports artists and intellectuals of all disciplines who have had to flee their countries under conditions of absolute urgency: war, political repression, sex discrimination, disasters, etc.

We are crowd funding to support those in Beirut devastated by the catastrophic explosion on August 4, 2020, which caused thousands of injuries and at least 80 casualties. The damages are enormous and hospitals have reached their capacities. 

The economic situation in Lebanon has been deteriorating exponentially since the revolution started last October.  More than half of the population is now living below the poverty line. With COVID, the country has become a prison, as Europe and many other countries have closed their borders to people flying from Lebanon. 

The collected money will be sent to NGOs working on the ground in Beirut to support injured and damaged people. We will post updates on where we are routing this funding as soon as we can clarify the most urgent needs – please stay tuned.

Every contribution is meaningful in this time of distress.

Thanks for your support.

Né en 1962, en Allemagne, Alfons grandit dans une famille d'artisans-ébénistes, une petite enfance qui lui permettra très tôt de développer un goût artistique prononcé. Au milieu des années 80, Il s'installe en France pour y exercer le métier de photographe. A l’interstice des arts, il explore cet espace où la photo rencontre et raconte les matières : papiers, pigments, bois, cuivre... Il fait art de toute matière. Une forme certaine d’altruisme artistique.

autour de l'oeuvre : « Thésée et le Minotaure » fait partie de la série « Les Chimères ». Alfons Alt traite le bestiaire, son sujet de prédilection comme personne. Il revisite le culte, les résonances, les symboles mythologiques et la Méditerranée dans le labyrinthe du Minotaure.
