Program Description:

Our artist-in-residence program aims to stimulate creativity through interaction with the local environment, artists and cultural institutions, and seeks to foster cross-cultural relations between participants and the local artistic community in Beirut. Tucked away in the side streets of central Beirut's bohemian district lies a building with inspiring views overlooking Beirut's shipping port. This area, called Gemmayze, along with Mar Mikhael, is the center of Beirut's bohemian quarter. Since the end of the Lebanese civil war in 1990 the neighborhood has been undergoing gentrification. Today it is well known for its emerging art scene with the appearance of several galleries in the past few years.

The art residency includes 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large shared working area along with 1 private working area. The six week program can hosts up to 5 multidisciplinary artists at a time. A group exhibition will culminate the residency.

This open call is for the October 2015 phase.
