This call is addressed to Lebanese initiatives, NGOs or associations looking for an affordable office space, for a period of one year. Ashkal Alwan aims to engage with the Lebanese civic society by offering a 50 sqm office space at a subsidised rent.  

The NGO-in-Residence should be a starting initiative or a small-scale association looking for a work space within Ashkal Alwan’s larger shared venue. The NGO-in-Residence will also benefit from special discounts for other Ashkal Alwan spaces, which could be used for holding workshops, lectures, or meetings.

A monthly contribution of $700 towards the overall space utilities will be required. The space can be shared between two organisations.
