5. SIM SITUATION / LEBANON
SITUATION IN LEBANON :
This forum topic aims at gathering and presenting all of the information related to the implementation of the SIM project in Lebanon.
It is organized around the three following topics: I/Local Network; II/Temporary local festival format and III/ Feasibility study.
I/ SIM LOCAL NETWORK :

Coordination: MM. Sharif Sehnaoui (IRTIJAL) and Hady Saleh (ACOUSMATIK)
Supports: MM. Khodor and Osma Arabi (ACOUSMATIK).
b/ Artistic Network:
See MM. Saleh and Sehnaoui’s contributions to the website, under "Artist Info".
Miss (reserved) (Egypt network) could be willing to help develop a panorama of the independent avant-gardes in Egypt and the Middle East.
She also mentioned the “LEOPARTS” project, in Lebanon, who has been doing such a research and should release a report in the coming days/weeks.
c/ Media supports:
II/TEMPORARY LOCAL FESTIVAL FORMAT:
a/ Targeted Harbors:
Beirut: September 2012
III/ FEASIBILITY STUDY:
Nothing has been undertaken so far, yet our partners are pretty confident about the feasibility of the project:
-Mooring facilities are plenty in Beirut.
-Some similar events have already been organized in Lebanon.
-Some mooring facilities are either disaffected or private, what makes them easier to access.
