The Institut français is launching its annual call for applications for the Institut français x Cité internationale des arts program for residencies of three, six or nine months, between April 2024 and April 2025.
This programme is aimed at artists and cultural professionals, in various disciplines, residing exclusively abroad for at least 5 years, who wish to develop a creative research project in Paris.
Artists' applications are supported by one or several cultural partners (French cultural network abroad, French or foreign cultural structures), who submit the application, cover the round-trip travel expenses and a monthly living allowance. The Institut français offers laureates free live-in studios at the Cité internationale des arts, as well as support both before and during their stay.
With the aim of strengthening the link between international artists and local institutions, priority will be given to projects involving a cultural institution in the Île-de-France region. This collaboration will also allow coordinated support for the laureate, in consultation with the Institut français.
Applications submitted directly by artists will not be accepted. Artist’s associated partners are authorized to submit several applications, but must ensure that they submit only one application per artist.
Closing of the call : October 20th, 2023 (11.59 p.m. CET)
Selection committee : December, 2023
Announcement of results : January, 2024
Before submitting the application, artist’s associated partners are invited to download the Regulations of the programme. If you encounter any difficulty regarding the constitution of the file, please contact Lucie Brechette (firstname.lastname@example.org).
