BAU Institute Residency > Residency award at the Camargo Foundation (France)

The BAU Institute Residency offers international mid-career artists, who have been working independently for over ten years, apartments and workspaces at no cost. Hosted by the Camargo Foundation, the BAU Institute’s Residency award supports artists working in the visual arts, film, performance, and writing on a secluded campus in Cassis, France.

The BAU Institute Residency provides artists a singular opportunity to devote intense focus on projects within an inspiring campus perched above the Mediterranean Sea. Residents are free to create their own schedule of studio practice combined with group dinners and outings. Film screenings, readings and studio presentations also support a vibrant community among Fellows. The setting enables undisturbed creativity, while still offering interaction with the local village of Cassis and the nearby city of Marseille.

BAU Institute encourages national and international applicants of diverse backgrounds. The residency may accommodate up to 15. Fellowship selections are determined by a rotating panel of discipline-specific professionals.

Applications will not be considered from full-time students.


BAU Institute will offer travel subsidies of $1,500 USD to each of two chosen mid-career applicants who require financial assistance in order to attend the residency. A mid-career artist is one who has been working independently for over ten years. Applications are accepted in all disciplines. Mid-career artists may apply for one or both awards, depending on eligibility.

The Anne Chu Award

This new subsidy honors the legacy of 2015 BAU Institute Fellow Anne Chu, a multi-disciplinary artist who worked primarily in sculpture. The award is open to mid-career artists working in all disciplines and from all backgrounds who require financial assistance to attend the residency.

The BAU Institute Travel Award for Diversity

This new subsidy is open to mid-career artists of any discipline who self-identify as artists of color and who require financial assistance to attend the residency.

Deadline: 31 January 2018 (careful; there is a 43$ application fee)
