Artists in Residence

The Institut français’ artist-in-residence programs give young designers, artists, filmmakers, exhibit commissioners, authors, etc., from France and abroad, an opportunity to spend a few weeks, or months, in another country to develop their creative project, with the help of a scholarship or housing provision.
Immersion into another country, culture and language gives artists an opportunity to put their practices into perspective to help enrich their work. This sometimes gives rise to unexpected collaborative projects.
