Espace Fann: A Beirut art space helping artists become sustainable

From painting and fashion design to digital art and self branding, Espace Fann offers university-level (and beginner) courses at affordable prices. The space was envisioned as one that supports local artists and provides them with the tools to make a living out of their work.

“The Van Gogh myth, about the man who cut his ear and died poor and then became famous, isn’t necessarily true,” said Yasmine Dabbous, founder of Espace Fann.
