Camargo Core Residency Program for International Candidates 2021 in France
The call for applications for residencies in fall 2021 and spring 2022 will be open until October 1, 2020.
The Core Program, which was initiated in 1971, awards 18 international fellowships in the Arts and Humanities, supporting research and experimentation that challenge the borders of academic and artistic inquiry while promoting cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural exchange. With the flagship Core Program at its center, in recent years Camargo has embarked on various collaborations with local and international organizations to forge a wide variety of new programs that further enhance the Foundation’s mission.
The inevitable transformations of the past fifty years acquire a new and galvanizing meaning during the challenges of today. More than ever, uninterrupted time and a contemplative, safe environment for innovative research, collaborative investigation, and creative experimentation are essential. This program hopes to stimulate reflections on the past and the present of our societies that will contribute to the process of rethinking the world of tomorrow.
A stipend of 250 USD per week is provided, as is funding for basic transportation to and from Cassis for the Fellow for the residency.
In the case of air travel, basic coach class booked in advance is covered.
The Camargo Foundation prizes diversity and welcomes applicants from all countries and nationalities, representing a broad range of creative thought and practice. Three main categories are available, and several subcategories for artists’ applications.
Scholars should be connected to the Arts and Humanities working on French and Francophone cultures, or cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region.
Thinkers include accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (such as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc.) who are professionally engaged in critical thought.
Artists (all disciplines)
Artists in all disciplines should be the primary creators of a new work/project and should have a track record of publications, performances, exhibitions, credits, awards, and/or grants. We are interested in artists who have a fully developed, mature artistic voice. Applicants may include artists who are engaged in critical thought and research-oriented projects.
Purpose of the Residency
Research, Experiment & Create: Applicants must submit a proposal of work they would like to accomplish during their residencies. Proposals may include specific projects to develop or complete (e.g. a book, film, composition, artwork, etc.) or research into a particular topic or issue, in advance of writing or creating a work of art.
Exchange & Network: During the residency, discussions are held regularly so that Fellows have the opportunity to present their work to the group. These project discussions serve as an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange. All Fellows are required to be present at these discussions.
The Camargo Core Program consists of fellowship residencies that span 6 to 11 weeks. The dates for 2021/2022 are:
Fall 2021: 8 weeks from September 8 to November 3
Spring 2022: 6 weeks from February 15 to March 29, 8 weeks from February 15 to April 12, or 11 weeks from February 15 to May 3
