On May 27th 2014, several months before the full public opening of the center, the residency program ‘Building Beita’ was opened. The program was dedicated to a collaborative research and development process, where the staff and a group of interdisciplinary artists-fellows met together to think, learn, map and build the Beita infrastructure through a series of theoretical workshops and meetings with residents of the city. The products of the residency process were presented to the general public in an opening exhibition, and shown for a month in our ‘open house’, from September 16th to the end of October 2014.
