Studio Faire is a brand new contemporary art centre in South West France, providing residencies for artists, writers, musicians and all other creative practitioners. They also organise creative and cultural events and courses to complement the residencies.
Studio Faire offers self-funded, self-directed residencies to international practitioners, working in any creative discipline, who would benefit from a period of uninterrupted time to focus on developing their work. Studio Faire’s residencies can offer time to focus on research and development to inspire a new body of work, to start and carry your practice into the future. The residencies can offer a change of pace from your normal routine, allowing time for problem solving, support through constructive feedback or the opportunity to try out ideas on a local audience before revealing them to the world. Studio Faire’s residencies can bring about cross-disciplinary collaboration or simply introduce you to new friends from different walks of life.
An exhibition or other public event can be arranged if desired.
Residents live and work in the house, studios and gardens of Studio Faire, a small mansion built around 1840 and still retaining its period characteristics. Accommodation is provided on a self-catering basis, with a private bedroom, plus shared interior and exterior living and work space. The two double/twin bedrooms and studios are spacious and mature gardens offer private, shaded space for work and play.
The shared studio space in the old garage, which is cool and spacious, can be accessed from the bedrooms and kitchen. Two giant attached workshops, plus another external building in the garden can also provide great space for larger sculptural projects or messy work. The huge living room can be used as a studio space by a writer, musician or artist/maker requiring a clean space.
