Founded by American artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill (1905-1972), the Camargo Foundation fosters creativity, research, and experimentation through its international residency program for artists, scholars, and thinkers. Located in Cassis, France, on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, the Foundation offers time and space in a contemplative and supportive environment, giving residents the freedom to think, create, and connect. The Core Program, which was initiated in 1971, awards 18 international fellowships in the Arts and Humanities, supporting research and experimentation that challenge the borders of academic and artistic inquiry while promoting cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural exchange.
Purpose of the residency:
Applicants must submit a proposal of work they would like to accomplish during their residencies. Proposals may include specific projects to develop or complete (e.g. a book, film, composition, artwork, etc.) or research into a particular topic or issue, in advance of writing or creating a work of art. The Camargo Core Program welcomes both open-ended exploration, or more focused works.
Artists in all disciplines. The Camargo Foundation prizes diversity and welcomes applicants from all countries and nationalities, representing a broad range of creative thought and practice. When applying, artists will have to choose among the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers, Theater Directors, and Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.
The Camargo Core Program consists of fellowship residencies that span 6 to 11 weeks. The dates for 2021/2022 are:
Fall 2021: 8 weeks from September 8 to November 3
Spring 2022: 6 weeks from February 15 to March 29, 8 weeks from February 15 to April 12, or 11 weeks from February 15 to May 3
A weekly stipend is provided, as is funding for basic transportation to and from Cassis. A special grant for parent artists (in all disciplines) is available, thanks to support provided by the Sustainable Arts Foundation, whose mission is to support artists with children.
