The City of Paris and the Institut français, France’s international agency for foreign cultural action affiliated to the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, offer an artist-in-residence programme dedicated to established foreign artists and writers at the “Centre International d’accueil et d’échanges des Récollets”, a venue for artists and researchers from around the world.

The artist-in-residence programme
The mission of the artist-in-residence programme is to host established foreign artists and writers, for a period of three months, who have a specific project to develop in Paris. Each project, for all disciplines (visual and performing arts, literature) should be carried out in partnership with a specified local structure (cultural site or resource center, gallery, company), or artist, or indeed a well-known personality in the arts and culture in Paris or surroundings. Overall, the research project should be developed in Paris, in harmony with the host town and its cultural environment. This residency is an opportunity of quiet reflection and creation for the artist, and will contribute to the visibility of international arts scene in Paris.

Deadline: 17 June 2014
