The « 1+2 Factory » is a programme of photographic residences in institutions, territories and/or companies. Over a given period, a photographer offers his authorial approach by making a new work about a theme and revisiting its story, its territory, its operational modes, its production and its savoir-faire. 

During the next autumn, the result of that work is exhibited in a museum of Toulouse and or in its metropolitan area, in a collective exhibition that gathers the “1+2 Factory” of the year. All the “1+2 Factory” is also displayed in the “Colloque national – Photographie & Sciences” during which photographers, scientist, companies, institutions, journalists and the general public are invited to express their views on this creative period and to exchange views with different audiences. The “1+2 Factory” programme aims to create a network of companies and institutions that are sympathetic to art. It is also a breeding ground for photographers with different styles of writing, to share their knowledge with all audiences.
