« I felt the need to take action for the ben­efit of Syrian refugee Children in Lebanon, in the field of edu­ca­tion as half of these 400 000 chil­dren do not go to school. Instead of organ­ising a charity auc­tion, I pre­ferred to put together, with my Artists and with the Managers of ART PARIS, a selling exhi­bi­tion on the Grand Palais’s four large Walls and on the external walls of my gallery’s booth. In that way, the works will be seen by its 50 000 vis­i­tors during the Parisian spring and the media will undoubt­edly high­light the gen­erosity of these artists and the cause they sup­port.

My goal is to raise enough funds to finance 5 schools for a whole year, and if pos­sible for two years. It is an act of human sol­i­darity and of hope in the future for these Children, a drop of fresh water, a well man­aged small action. The sale pro­ceeds will be donated to the French asso­ci­a­tion CODSSY.ORG, which heads sev­eral asso­ci­a­tions of Syrian teachers who are active on the ground and spe­cialised in the edu­ca­tion of Syrian refugee boys and girls in Lebanon. I signed a con­ven­tion with CODSSY so that on one hand it pro­vides each artist with an attes­ta­tion of their dona­tion and on the other hand it reports to us the activ­i­ties of each school every 6 months. »
