The Sounds of the Alphabet of the Sea

Walk/Workshop by Dar Onboz led by Nadine Touma

Location: the Ain Mreisseh Fishermen's port - Dar El Mreisseh Street

About the Workshop

The sounds of the alphabet from sea to a stairway:

We walk We listen
We hear a sound
We create its verb
We have a sound verb

What is the sound of the sun on the sand?
The sound of waves in your hand?
The sound of seagulls in the sky?
The sound of laughters when they fly?

This workshop was done during La Semaine Du Son Liban 2019, Beirut Design Week 2019, and the Fall semester of the University for Seniors program. 


Dar Onboz is an award-winning multidisciplinary creative platform producing Arabic publications, films, songs, performances, educational tools, games, objects, and exhibitions for the young and not so young.

We believe in sowing curiosity to spark learning, in weaving tales to create magic, in learning from our ancestral heritage to build know-hows. We intertwine art with science, architecture, archaeology, history, nature, stories and more, to produce memorable experiences.

We implement our philosophy through training, workshops, multimedia kits, and decentralized activities within Schools, Universities, NGOs, Public Libraries, Municipalities and Ministries.

Recently Dar Onboz has expanded into Madar Onboz (multidisciplinary actions for developing Arabic resources)
