About meThe Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts, Ashkal Alwan is a non-profit organization based in Beirut, Lebanon. Since 1993, the association has been committed to the production, facilitation and circulation of creative and intellectual endeavors across a range of disciplines and media. Ashkal Alwan’s programs include the Home Works Forum on Cultural Practices, curated projects in Lebanon and abroad, the publication of literary works and artists’ books, artists-in-residency programs and the video production and screening program Video Works. Through these initiatives and others, the association has established itself as a reference within the cultural landscape of the region and beyond. In 2011, Ashkal Alwan launched Home Workspace, a 2000m² facility in Beirut dedicated to arts education and production.
