Residences at Centre international des Récollets

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.
