The Institut français and the City of Paris offer an artist-in-residence program dedicated to established foreign artists and writers at the Centre international d’accueil et d’échanges des Récollets, a venue for artists and researchers from around the world. Apply for 2016 residencies!
 
This program hosts established foreign artists and writers who have a specific project they want to develop in Paris for a period of three months. Each project, should it concern visual arts, performing arts or literature, has to be carried out in partnership either with a specified local structure (cultural site or resource center, gallery, company) or an artist or a well-known arts and culture personality established in Paris or its surroundings. Overall, the research project should be developed in Paris, in harmony with the host town and its cultural environment.
 
This residency is an opportunity of quiet reflection and creation for the artist, and will contribute to the visibility of international arts scene in Paris.
