Program Description:

BAR is a live-work space for artists looking to develop projects in a stimulating environment. The goal of the program is to facilitate collaboration between international as well as local artists. During their time, residents are encouraged to diverge from their usual practice and experiment with new ideas with the comfort of knowing that they are not expected to produce finished work at the culminating Open Studio event. The BAR team hold weekly meetings with artists to help them locate materials, connect with local art figures and generally find their bearings in this multifaceted city.

Our artist-in-residence program is a prime stepping-stone for emerging artists embarking on their career and established artists exploring new disciplines. The residency seeks to foster cross-cultural relations between participants and the local artistic community in Beirut. This is achieved through organized screenings, workshops, open panel discussions and performances with art professionals from the Middle East and around the world.

Tucked away in the side streets of central Beirut's Gemmayze district lies a building with inspiring views overlooking the shipping port. This area along with Mar Mikhael, is the center of Beirut's bohemian quarter. With the presence of several art spaces, the gemmayze district holds a high influence in Beirut's burgeoning art and culture scene.
