An overall one-time stipend of €2,500 will be provided to the selected project to cover expenditures associated with the residency (including travel expenses and production costs).


The residents will be hosted by the receiving organizations in Marseille and Cassis. The Camargo Foundation’s campus includes thirteen furnished apartments, a reference library, a music/conference room, an open-air theater, one artist’s studio with darkroom, and one composer’s studio with a piano. The Camargo Foundation does not have a dance studio. The facilities are ideal for desk work. The Camargo Foundation does not provide art supplies or technical equipment. All apartments include a fully equipped kitchen for residents to prepare their own meals. The Frac building includes two 40 m2 studio apartments, with one bedroom and one double bed each. The organizations will work together with the selected team to organize the residency by taking into account the capacity, the availability, and the constraints of the hosting organizations.


The residency spans 4 to 6 weeks according to the needs of the project, divided between Marseille and Cassis. The residency can be done in different phases over a period of up to 2 years. The residencies will take place between January 2021 and December 2022. The precise schedule will be determined according to the availabilities of the apartments and the needs of the selected teams.
