GMEA / Le Lait > Residency for Sound Artists (France)


GMEA (the National Centre for Musical Creation) and Le Lait (a contemporary art centre) are offering a combined residency at their facilities in Albi for artists working in the field of the sonic arts. The selected artist will have to incorporate sound/acoustic material in the development of the work or works produced, with the prospect of a presentation in the art centre’s exhibition areas. The residency will take place between October 2020 and January 2021.

The two organisations will make available to the artist in residence a work space that meets his or her needs, as well as a technical and administrative team. The residency will begin at the GMEA (studios and rehearsal room), and then move to Le Lait (exhibition rooms). An apartment and work space will be available for the selected artist. Logistical and professional assistance from the GMEA and Le Lait teams will be possible, depending on the requirements of the project. Access to the work spaces (studio, workshop) will be arranged with Le Lait’s technical manager and the GMEA’s sound engineer.

  • A grant of €1500, all taxes included.

  • Per diem totalling €500 over the residency period.

  • Production expenses of €1500, all taxes included.

  • Two roundtrip tickets from the artist’s place of residence (totalling up to €800, all taxes included).
