The residency stretches over 270 sqm of an art deco style building from the 50s. The terrace wrapping the north end of the residence provides artists with a scenic view of Beirut's port and also invites natural light to illuminate the studio space. The space includes 3 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a full kitchen and dining area. Residents may work in the high ceilinged open-plan studio or a private working area overlooking the courtyard. Upon admission artists can choose between a private or shared bedroom. WIFI is available throughout the space.
Applications are open year round to artists of all disciplines (visual arts, design, sculpture, installation, performative arts, film).
An admissions committee will review applications and select candidates. Decisions are based on the quality of the project plan and the proposal's suitability. Final acceptance is at the discretion of the committee.
