From 1 March 2021 to 30 June 2022
The "NAFAS" programme, part of the emergency aid to Lebanon announced by the French President in September 2020, welcomes 100 Lebanese artists in residence in France.

Implemented by the Institut français, l’Association des Centres culturels de rencontre and the Institut français in Lebanon, the programme is co-funded by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture.

The objective of "NAFAS" is to allow 100 Lebanese artists, whose profession has been hit hard, to pursue their creative activities within the framework of cultural exchanges with France.

It aims to support Lebanese artists, creators and cultural professionals by inviting them to France for artistic residencies. The goal is to support them in the development of a research and creative project, in all sectors of contemporary creation.
