Odyssée artist-in-residency programme

The ACCR has put in place, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, a programme of residencies for foreign researchers, artists and cultural administrators. This programme, called ‘Odyssée’, is aiming at artists, researchers and culture professionals from countries other than France wanting to develop projects within French Cultural Centers – Historic Monuments, in different areas such as music, architecture, arts and crafts, visual arts, dramatic writing, novel writing, scriptwriting, animated film-making, photography and journalism.

 The programme enables residents to be accommodated free of charge at one of the CCRs and puts at their disposition the technical resources for them to bring their residency project to fruition. The residency grants are normally awarded for a period of one month, though this may be extended to six months.
