Beirut Art Residency is a nonprofit, artist-run interdisciplinary space welcoming residents from all artistic backgrounds. 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.
