The Camargo Foundation, located in Cassis, France and founded by artist and
philanthropist Jerome Hill, is a residential center offering multicultural and interdisciplinary programming in the humanities and the arts. Offering artists, researchers and intellectuals a space to reflect. Iit is particularly dedicated to researchers who want to pursue studies in the human and social sciences related to French, French-speaking and Mediterranean cultures, as well as to artists of any artistic discipline to think, create, and connect.

LabexMed, unit of Excellence for Mediterranean studies, coordinated by the Maison
Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme – USR 3125 in Aix-en-Provence (France), has the ambition of moving further along the path towards pluridisciplinary and integrated research on the Mediterranean, on the strength of its partner units’ disciplines (archaeology, history, anthropology, sociology, geography, political sciences, economics, law, philosophy, epistemology), by encouraging the dialogue between HSS and the earth, life and environmental sciences, throughout any time and geographical scales.

The Camargo Foundation and LabexMed program are keen to stimulate relations and
cultural exchanges between researchers and artists of the Mediterranean Basin in order to support the development of projects at the interface between HSS and the arts with the aim of a common production.

In their proposals, applicants should therefore clearly demonstrate their interest in
interdisciplinary crossovers and in exchanges between HSS and the arts, on the basis of their research and itineraries.
