On the occasion of the “11th edition of Art Dubai”, 81 Designs, co-founded by Nesrine El-Tibi Maalouf and Nadine Y Maalouf in 2015, created with the desire and compassion to use art as a social enterprise vehicle, presents its launch project in collaboration with internationally acclaimed “calligraffiti” artist eL Seed, whose artworks are recreated by the skilled women refugees.
The social enterprise 81 Designs aims to empower Palestinian women refugees living in South Lebanon by providing them with jobs based on their skillset: each of its project collaborates with an artist from the Middle East and North Africa region.
