Call for Candidates: Residences at Récollets [fr]
The City of Paris and the Institut français, France’s international agency for foreign cultural action affiliated to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, offer an artist-in-residence program dedicated to established foreign artists and writers at the “Centre International des Récollets”, a venue for artists and researchers from around the world.
The purpose of the residence program is to host artists and writers who have a specific project to develop in Paris. Each project, for all disciplines should be carried out in partnership with a previously specified local institution or other structure, company, artist, or indeed a well-known personality from the arts and culture in Paris or surrounding area. Overall, any research project should be developed in Paris, in harmony with the host town and its cultural environment. This residency, which is a privileged period of reflection and creativity for the artist, will contribute to the presence and visibility of international artists in Paris.
The Institut français will allocate a 1500 € fixed monthly allowance. This is intended to cover living expenses such as food, local transport, etc.
