A stipend of 250 USD per week is available, as is funding for basic transportation to and from Cassis.
A special grant for parent artists (in all disciplines) is available, thanks to support provided by the Sustainable Arts Foundation, whose mission is to support artists with children. This supplementary support ranges from USD 500 to USD 1,000 depending on need, length of stay, and family circumstance.
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:
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.
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.
The buildings and grounds include thirteen apartments, a reference library, a music-conference room, a composer studio, a visual art studio, and an outdoor amphitheater.
A photocopier, printer, projector, microfilm reader(35mm), and electric typewriter (American keyboard) are available for the residents.
Located in a small town of South of France, facing the Mediterranean sea, the Foundation is the perfect environment to reflect and create. It benefits from the quietness and high quality of the environment and surrounding nature (Cap Canaille, Calanques national park), and at the same time is within 45 minutes’ drive of Marseille, France’s 2nd city, Aix-en-Provence and Arles which are major centers for arts, culture and research.
