The « 1+2 Factory » is a program of photographic residencies in institutions, research laboratories and/or companies. Over a given period (from 1 to 6 months), a photographer creates an original work.

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 Symposium – Photography & Sciences » 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 » program 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.
