Description 

The Camargo Foundation, located in Cassis, France and founded by artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill, is a residential center offering programming in the humanities and the arts. It offers time and space in a contemplative environment to think, create, and connect. The Foundation encourages the work of scholars, artists, and leading thinkers in the arts and humanities.

Established more than 40 years ago by Jerome Hill, the Camargo Foundation has always welcomed artists and scholars. Today, the Foundation receives artists and scholars of any nationality to work on specific projects or research areas alone or collectively.

For the core Fellowship program the Foundation offers four to eleven week residential fellowships to :

  • Scholars working in French and Francophone cultures, including cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region;
  • Artists, in all disciplines, who are the primary creators of new work; and
  • Leading thinkers in the arts and humanities

Regular Project Discussions are organized in which each Fellow’s work is presented and discussed.  The rest of the time is fully dedicated to each Fellow’s own work on site.
