The Camargo Core Programme fosters connections between research and creation – Call for residency

Deadline: 17 October 2018


The Camargo Core Programme is the flagship initiative of the Camargo Foundation. Each year a call for applications is announced. 18 fellows (9 artists and 9 scholars/thinkers) are ultimately selected.

The Camargo Core Programme offers the opportunity for participants to think, create, and connect in a productive and nurturing environment. By encouraging ground-breaking research and experimentation, the initiative supports the visionary work of artists, scholars, and thinkers in Humanities and the Arts. The Camargo Core Programme intends to foster connections between research and creation through its use of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches.

The Camargo Foundation welcomes applicants of all nationalities. Interested participants can apply in one of the following three categories: Scholars, Thinkers, or Artists. When applying, artists will select from the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers and Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video, and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.

Applicants can apply to the residencies with the intent to “research, experiment, and create” or to “exchange and network”.

  • Research, experiment & create: applicants may apply either with a defined project or an area of inquiry on which they would like to concentrate during the residency. An area of inquiry should be specific and involve exploration and investigation in the Fellow’s field. The Camargo Core Programme welcomes both open-ended exploration as well as more focused works and long-term research projects.
  • Exchange & network: during the residency, discussions are held regularly to foster cross-disciplinary exchange between Fellows. In addition, the Camargo Foundation’s Staff provides formal and informal links with local professionals to develop possible creative collaborations between the Fellow and the region.

A stipend of 250 USD per week is available. Funding for basic transportation to and from Cassis for the fellow will also be provided during the residency. In the case of air travel, the programme will finance coach airfare booked in advance. Candidates must be able to communicate well in English.


The residency periods are:

Fall (8 weeks from 10 September to 5 November 2019)

Spring (6 / 8 / 11 weeks from 26 February 2020)
