Create and exhibit new work on the French Riviera.

Description of Residency Program
Located in the heart of the old town Vallauris, on the French Riviera, A.I.R. Vallauris (Artists in
Residence), a non-profit association, welcomes artists from around the world to its lodgings and
studios to meet with local artists and to research and create new works in a unique setting.
In its 18th season, A.I.R. Vallauris has welcomed near to 300 international artists since its
conception in 2001. The Association has three primary objectives:

  • The hosting of international artists and the support of contemporary creation.
  • Education in (primarily, but not exclusively) the field of ceramic arts.
  • The organisation and realisation of cultural events.

A.I.R. Vallauris accommodates several artists at a given time in its residence and studios. Using
different mediums artists (ceramists, sculptors, painters, photographers, video and multimedia)
work from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are afforded access to a
gallery where their works are displayed and celebrated at the end of their residency period.
Media involvement encourages the interest of an invited and engaged audience. The quality of
artistic creation is one of the major concerns addressed by the program. A selection committee
evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal.
