The Home Workspace Progaram is an annual, interdisciplinary arts program launched by Ashkal Alwan in 2011. The program targets emerging artists who wish to develop their formal, historical, and critical skills and practice in a supportive environment in Beirut.

Each edition or class of the HWP runs for 10 months, led by a different Resident Professor (RP) (or Resident Professors (RPs) as is the case in 2013-14) each year and admitting 10-15 participants. Part academic, part practice-based, the curriculum consists of lectures, workshops and seminars by the RP(s) and other leading local and international artists, writers, thinkers, filmmakers, curators, etc. Participants work on collective projects, as well as develop their own in coordination with the RP(s), visiting professors, and assigned mentors.
In addition to the curriculum, participants also benefit from a support-network of individuals, professionals, venues and resources around Beirut and elsewhere in Lebanon.
Participants are expected to reside in Beirut for 10 months with limited outside engagements, to participate actively in the various activities initiated by the RP(s) and visiting guests, and to develop and produce a project. 
The HWP 2013-14 will start in September 2013.


Deadline for applications is Sunday February 24, 2013.
