Lebanon and the world are going through times of crisis, dramatically affecting the ability and resources of artists to continue and develop their practices and secure their livelihoods.

In such times knowing about existing opportunities for artists becomes an urgent need – which is why we would like to draw your attention to a selection of residency programs, financing possibilities, mentoring opportunities, coproduction-calls and other Chances from our networks, which may be of interest to Lebanon based artists.

Please note that applications should be submitted through the institution issuing the call and not through Goethe-Institut Libanon, if not otherwise indicated.

Here is our regularly updated selection of Chances for you.
