What began as an idea between two Lebanese dreamers on a subway train in Brooklyn in 2001, blossomed into a global art collective they named "xanadu*, a beautiful place."
The idea was to encourage Arab artists to express themselves and exhibit their work, in what was one of the most difficult times in history for an Arab to be living in New York City. In 2003, xanadu* opened up in the legendary Greenwich Village with the mission to showcase artwork, poetry, and music made by young Arab artists.
For three years, xanadu* held monthly events that included art exhibitions, poetry and music performances, publications, and even chess lessons. It seemed as if Planet xanadu*, with all her multi-talented citizens, had become a microcosmic New York City.
