1-week Residency in SW France. Offering a change of pace and the space to create.

Description of residency program
Studio Faire is a contemporary art space in South West France, providing residencies for artists, writers, musicians and all other types of creative practitioner.

Studio Faire is now accepting applications from writers, screenwriters, musicians, dancers, photographers and filmmakers and for this 1-week residency in August 2019.

The residency is based in a beautiful Maison de maître built around 1840 and still retaining its period characteristics. Situated in the market town of Nérac, in the stunning Lot-et-Garonne region, on the northern edge of Gascony, here you will find the ‘real’ unspoilt France. Medieval Villages are surrounded by green rolling hills that lead your eye to the horizon via fruit orchards and vines. The perfect place to slow down and focus.

Duration of residency
1 week

Available Dates
15 – 22 August

Disciplines and assistance
This particular residency is open to creative practitioners working in all clean media.

Your hosts have many skills between them. Colin Usher is a Photographer and Digital Media expert and Julia Douglas a Mixed Media Artist (specialising in Textiles) and Web Designer. They are also well connected in the area and willing to share their knowledge and contacts with you during your stay. There will most likely be another resident at Studio Faire during your stay with whom you can share information and ask for feedback.

A professional photoshoot of you and your work is also included.

Studio / workspace
The 'Living Room' studio is situated on the ground floor. It’s a large room (575 x 517cm) and has the most stunning marble fireplace and polished wooden floor. It has two windows onto the front of the house (road side) and one glass door out onto the garden, so plenty of natural light from the North and East. There are shutters on the windows and door, so if you want to shut out the world, this is easily achieved! The studio is not attached to a neighbouring property, so noise pollution is not an issue (from either the resident or neighbour).

Residents live and work in the house, studios and gardens of Studio Faire. Rooms and studios are spacious and mature gardens offer private, shaded space for work and play.

This 1 week self-directed residency is a self-funded residency for 1 person. Fees include a private double bedroom and studio, plus shared shower room with toilet, kitchen, dining room and gardens. A professional photoshoot is also included.

1 week for 1 person is 320 €.

Expectations towards the artist
As this is a self-funded residency, Studio Faire has no expectations towards the artist and hope that this supportive environment, without the pressure to produce, will aid creativity, experimentation and the development of new ideas.

Studio Faire offers all creative practitioners a change of pace and the space to create.
