Calling all adventure athletes, partners, and supporters:
Join us in Lebanon next spring for an international adventure festival with a sports diplomacy twist.
The Lebanon Highline and Adventure Festival
HIGHLINING | CLIMBING | PARAGLIDING | MORE
At the end of April, Crossing Lines helped to host the first international highline and adventure sports festival in Kadisha Valley, Lebanon. Our goal was to bring together a vibrant crew of international adventure athletes to experience the Middle East first-hand and to use our sports to connect people across cultural and political divides.
We established 8 new highlines in a stunningly beautiful canyon near Bcharre and were joined by more than 60 people from 22 different countries. For many of the festival volunteers and participants, it was their first time traveling in the Middle East.
IMAGINE YOURSELF HERE NEXT YEAR
And consider joining us for a Crossing Lines teaching project at the same time
We’re looking forward to the next edition of the Lebanon Highline and Adventure Festival. We’re also ramping up our projects teaching slacklining and other movement arts to refugees in Bekaa Valley, a couple hours away.
Mark your calendars for late April / early May to join us for LHAF 2019 and perhaps come share your passion for movement with some amazing refugee youth.
