The Grand Factory, as a nightlife venue, will not return to what it used to be before the country is safe. Instead, it caters, once more, to the cultural fabric of the country by introducing an Artists Residency Program. The modular space will be transformed for the Residency serving as both an artist workshop and an exhibition. Based on experience and project proposal, 8-12 artists under the Age of 30 will be selected from the fields of Music, Design and Film. Using their respective disciplines, these artists will produce an integrated piece of work exhibited at The Grand Factory.APPLY NOW
The residency is an interdisciplinary project that gathers different artists under The Grand Factory’s roof. A panel of local and international jurors will be shortlisting the submissions and following up on the project all along.
In addition to working on their main residency project, the artists will be provided with a series of workshops, masterclasses and more. We will also aim to support in capacity building, curatorial assistance, materials and production.
The residency culminates in an Open House at The Grand Factory itself. The exhibition will serve as the official opening of the renovated and rebuilt space.
The Grand Factory Artist Residency is an initiative that comes to top off our ever growing community outreach. We have constantly driven and supported the artist community in Lebanon, through workshops, competitions and artist development programs and have a year-long residency program for 8-12 artists.OUR STORY
