Camargo Foundation

Camargo Foundation

Description 

The Camargo Foundation, located in Cassis, France, and founded by artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill, is an international 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 visionary work of artists, scholars, and thinkers in the arts and humanities.
Launched in 1971, the Camargo Core Program is the historical and flagship program of the Foundation. Each year an international call is launched through which 18 fellows (9 artists and 9 scholars/thinkers) are selected:

  • Scholars : applicants should be connected to the arts and humanities working on French, Francophone, or Mediterranean cultures.
  • Thinkers : this category includes accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (i.e. as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc).
  • Artists (all disciplines): applicants should be the primary creators of a new work/project.
Outcome 

A copy of any publication resulting from work done during the residency should be sent to the Camargo library. Any publication, exhibit, or performance resulting from the great should give credit to the Camargo Foundation.

Accommodation Information 

Fellows are provided with accommodation in private apartments with kitchens on the Foundation’s campus facing the sea and the Port of Cassis.

Spouses/adult partners and dependent minor children may accompany fellows for short stays or for the duration of the residency. Please read the Residency Guidelines for more information.
