The drab walls of the Barrad neighborhood in south Lebanon's Sidon were turned into colorful pieces of art, as part of the Al-Reaaya Organization's "Reviving Neighborhoods" campaign. For the second year in a row, a score of local residents, volunteers, activists and artists from the Lebanese Artists Association for Painting and Sculpture joined forces to give another of the city's neighborhoods a fresh lick of paint.The campaign is not only about redecorating the neighborhood's walls, but also includes an environmental aspect.The "Reviving Neighborhoods" campaign began almost exactly a year ago and revitalized the city's Al-Bustan al-Kabir neighborhood.
