The “1+2 Factory” is a programme of photographic residencies in institutions, territories and/or companies. Over a given period of time, a photographer proposes his or her authorial approach by creating a new work around a theme and by revisiting its history, its territory, its operating methods, its production and its know-how.

The following autumn, the result of this work is exhibited in a museum in Toulouse and/or its metropolis, in a collective exhibition that brings together the “1+2 Factory” of the year. The entire “1+2 Factory” is also exhibited in the “National Colloquium – Photography & Science” during which photographers, scientists, companies, institutions, journalists and the general public are invited to express their views on this period of creation and to exchange ideas with different audiences. The “1+2 Factory” programme aims to create a network of companies and institutions sensitive to art. It is also a breeding ground for photographers with different writing styles, to share their knowledge with all audiences.
