Ashkal Alwan announces an open call for applications to participate in the 9th edition of the Home Workspace Program (HWP), taking place in Beirut from October 7, 2019 through July 20, 2020.
HWP is a 10-month study program that enrolls 10-15 fellows per year. The program is open to artists aiming to develop their formal, theoretical, and critical skills in dialogue with fellow artists, scholars, writers, thinkers, and others. Each fellow is granted a merit-based scholarship and a shared studio space. Some of the program’s lectures, seminars, and workshops are open free of charge to non-enrolled participants.
The 2019-20 program consists of three primary modes of inquiry; the Preface, the workshops, and seminars with ongoing mentorship provided by the Advisors. Invited guests this year include Sophia Al Maria, Kader Attia, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Nesrine Khodr, Frank Leibovici, Sandra Noeth, Walid Raad, Yasmine Eid Sabbagh, and Walid Sadek among others.
Haig Aivazian, Daniel Genadry and Joe Namy are this year’s Advisors.
