Updated on 07/07/2021

The Institut français is pleased to announce the list of artists and cultural professionals selected for the program NAFAS, 100 résidences d’artistes libanais en France. This emergency program is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture and six partner local authorities (Régions Sud, Hauts-de-France, Centre-Val de Loire, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, ainsi que la Ville et la Métropole de Lyon) to respond to the critical situation of artists in Lebanon.

NAFAS: a “breath” for Lebanese creators

Announced in March 2021, the NAFAS program aims to invite 100 artists and cultural professionals for artistic residencies in France. Thanks to the support and collaboration of more than fifty partners, the program offers Lebanese artists a creative interlude in France and strengthens the cultural cooperation between the two countries.

A selection reflecting diversity

Fifteen artistic disciplines are represented within the NAFAS program, through projects presented by a variety of emerging and/or established artists, from different geographical contexts.

The selection was made by host structures and representatives of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture, the Institut français in Paris and Lebanon, and the Association des Centres culturels de rencontre. During the evaluation of the applications, particular attention was paid to the candidate's professional background, the quality of the project, its matching with the host structure, and the working protocol envisaged.
