On a recent Thursday, a group of around 40 teens and young adults gathered in a meeting room in Ishbilia art hub to hear and perform poetry and music.Another woman, Hiba Korjieh, has attended seven of Sidewalk Saida's first eight events that invite anyone to step onstage and perform.Yes, co-host Malak Abou Zhar confirmed to The Daily Star, a community has started to grow around the Sidewalk Saida events.Co-host Mohammad Rashid looked for a space like this while growing up in Sidon, but had to go to Beirut to find it.Rashid said that the events in Sidon were especially well-visited.Rashid was so convinced with the idea behind Sidewalk that it was one of the reasons he quit his job. He wants to use some of his free time to professionalize Sidewalk Saida.Korjieh also liked Younes' improvisations, though she noted the performances hadn't left her time to get up on stage to sing. Maybe she will find the courage the next time Sidewalk is taking place in Sidon.
