Founded in 2015, the Beirut Art Residency (BAR) is a non-profit association that is committed to creating opportunities for international and local artists through residencies, local exhibitions and public interventions. By collaborating with like-minded cultural institutions, BAR continues to pursue the stimulation of the country's intellectual and cultural stance. With a core focus on the professional growth of artists from all disciplines, the residency encourages artists to venture beyond their usual practice and to create links with local residents of Beirut to engage on a wider international discourse surrounding contemporary art.
