Haven for Artists is an all-inclusive feminist art organization (NGO) based in Beirut, Lebanon, working at the intersection of art and activism.

Haven combines creative and humanitarian methods to facilitate a safe space for the exchange of knowledge, tools, and skills in-order to create a more just world.
