Brief description of residency program

Launched in 1971, the Camargo Core Program is the historical and flagship program of the Foundation. Each year an international call is launched through which 18 fellows (9 artists and 9 scholars/thinkers) are selected:
• Scholars : applicants should be connected to the arts and humanities working on French, Francophone, or Mediterranean cultures.
• Thinkers : this category includes accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (i.e. as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc).
• Artists (all disciplines): applicants should be the primary creators of a new work/project.

We have recently launched the call for applications for the Camargo Core Program for residencies in F?all 2020 and S?pring 2021. The deadline to apply is October 1, 2019.
