JOY MARDINI DESIGN GALLERY x BEIRUT ART RESIDENCY Calling out to all product designers to apply for a two-month design residency in Beirut. The aim of this residency is to foster experimentation and collaboration between local and international designers. Three international designers will be selected to participate in the residency, and will be introduced to Beirut-based designers represented by Joy Mardini Design Gallery (JMDG). Based on similarities in practice or interest in experimentation the designers will be paired to work on a collaborative piece.
Products created during this residency will be showcased during Beirut Design Week (May 19-26, 2017). The resulting works will then become part of JMDG's showroom.
The render residency will include: - Flights to and from Beirut - Accommodation at Beirut Art Residency - Studio space - Material and production budget - Administrative and logistical support - An open studios exhibition during Beirut Design Week 2017
An admissions committee will review applications and select candidates. Decisions are based on the quality of the project plan and the proposal's suitability. Applicants will be notified by the first week of February 2017.
