The AIWA workshop which took place in Aley, (a town situated in the hills 10km from Beirut) during September 2005 was the realisation of a lengthy planning process involving the host group in Beirut, Braziers Workshop and the Triangle Arts Trust. The second AIWA workshop took place in 2008.

Both workshops successfully brought together artists from Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt and Iran to work with artists from the Lebanon. From further afield artists came from the UK, Mexico and China.

The first Open Day at Aley attracted over 400 visitors and ended with a memorable celebration of an event that had succeeded against some formidable obstacles.
