Craftsmanship is an essential part of Lebanese history and identity, helping reshape various urban and rural contexts and supported the livelihoods of families and individuals over the years. Despite its important role in the country’s economic and social development, it remains a sector lost in translation, suspended between a public institutions’ negligence and a non-existent policy framework to support its development. As a result, this practice is gradually disappearing, thus placing Lebanon’s valuable intangible cultural heritage at risk.
