Camargo Foundation, Frac & Goethe-Institut > Collaborative Residency (France)

The Camargo Foundation in Cassis, the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (Frac), and the Goethe-Institut in Marseille are coming together to support one international project led by a team of artists and scholars. The selected team, composed of two to four members, will be hosted both at Frac and Camargo in 2021/2022.

This interdisciplinary residency programme focuses on the different dimensions of the Marseille metropolitan area. The newly established Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolitan Area is located on the Mediterranean Sea with a mix of urban areas and unique natural sites. As the second largest metropolitan area in France, it has nearly 2 million inhabitants in 92 municipalities, with large inequalities. This programme offers the possibility of a joint residency in two art organisations located in two very different parts of the metropolitan area. The focus of the selected project should involve some artistic research taking into account the two different settings/territories of the residency.

The main purpose of the residency is to stimulate relations and cultural exchanges between scholars and artists of the Mediterranean Basin and Europe, in order to support the development of projects at the interface between scientific research and the arts with the aim of a common production. In their proposals, applicants should therefore clearly demonstrate their interest in interdisciplinary crossovers and exchanges between arts and sciences, on the basis of their research and itineraries.


  • The residency is open to teams of artists in all creative disciplines and researchers/critics/curators working with experimental or artistic approaches. Applicants must be professionals actively working in the arts.

  • At least one group member must be a resident of Germany.

  • Preference will be given to teams that include a member from a Mediterranean country (including the Region Provence-Alpes-Côte-D’Azur, European countries, as well as countries of the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean regions).

  • The team can be composed of two to four members. The team should apply with a joint proposal and artists or researchers applying as individuals are not eligible.


  • An overall one-time stipend of €2500 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 organisations at the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, and at Frac in Marseille.

The residency spans 4-6 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.

Deadline: 12 July 2020
