Residency Dates: March 30- May 26, 2017

Render is a two-month design residency in Beirut. The aim of this residency is to foster experimentation and collaboration between local and international designers. Two international designers have been 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

Our two product designers, Anne-Claire Hostequin (France) and Francesco Pace (Italy) are under the mentorship of two local designers, Carla Baz and Marc Baroud.
