We are primarily based in Montreal, Canada – however, our international team of ambassadors facilitate our long-distance work.

Simply stated, EAS is of the very few youth gatherings in North America intended to facilitate development work in the Middle East. Our goal is to enable the Diaspora
What production fields fall within the scope of 'development work'?
So long as one can forward the lives of others, his/her work is considered developmental. As such, EAS brings together the widest variety of disciplines possible – ranging from cinematic production to biotechnological innovation.
Is EAS an event of political nature?
No – we are not a political advocacy group; we encourage development initiatives that are as extensive and as accessible as possible. We do not advocate any work based on religious, ideological, and cultural discrimination.
What were the selection criteria for speakers at EAS 2012?
Of utmost priority was that the work and contributions to the region by the speaker be ongoing, accessible, and politically/ideologically unaligned. Without compromising the merit of our speakers, we tried to be as representationally inclusive as possible in reflection of the dynamics of Arabic identity.
