The Association Luxor Factory in brief

Founded in 2011 in Le Locle (in Switzerland, canton of Neuchâtel), Luxor Factory is a nonprofit organization that considers the artistic creation as an universal vector of meetings and innovations. By anchoring the project in a peripheral region of Switzerland (near the french border), Luxor Factory apprehends the world as an infinite territory of expression.
To promote the mobility of artists and cultures from diverse backgrounds and cultural synergy between the Neuchâtel Mountains and the international art scene, Luxor Factory offers free hosting to foreign creators interested by a residence and a work-room for a maximum period of six months. Preference will be given to foreign professional artists.
More than a home-workshop, the structure offers to its hosts opportunities to discover cultural and social realities of the region, to create links with local artists, cultural actors and, of course, the population. This type of interaction helps to promote the assets of the region. The term "cultural exchange" takes its full meaning.

Aims of the association:

  • Host professional artists in Le Locle, inside the building that was the Luxor watch factory (a world heritage site classified by UNESCO).
  • Develop and animate the cultural scene through multicultural events offered free to the public.
  • Create synergies between the residents and the various regional cultural actors.
  • Develop projects based on regional issues (time, geographical, political, economic and social, etc.).
  • Ensure the management, the viability and the sustainability of the project by constant searches for financial support (sponsoring and subsidies).
  • Increase the visibility of the association through appropriate communication tools (website, printed, social networks, media, swiss network "Artists in résidence.ch, etc.).
  • Highlight the Mountain Heritage.
  • Support the hosts by wishing to see them glad when they leave the place... And give them the opportunity to come back!
