Call for applications – Camargo Core Program, Camargo Foundation, Cassis, France

Deadline to apply: October 17, 2018

The Camargo Core Program is the historical and flagship program of the Foundation. Each year an international call is launched through which 18 fellows (9 artists and 9 scholars/thinkers) are selected. The Camargo Core Program offers time and space in a contemplative environment to think, create, and connect. By supporting groundbreaking research and experimentation, it contributes to the visionary work of artists, scholars and thinkers in the Arts and Humanities. By encouraging multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, it intends to foster connections between research and creation.

Eligibility

The Camargo Foundation welcomes applications from all countries and nationalities. Three main categories are available, and several subcategories for artists’ applications :
– Scholars
– Thinkers
– Artists (all disciplines

Purpose of the Residency

Research, Experiment & Create: applicants may apply either with a specific project (e.g. completion of a book, an artwork, etc.) or with a specific area of inquiry (i.e. an investigation of a specific topic or issue in advance of writing or creating a work of art) on which they would like to work during the residency. An area of inquiry should represent exploration and investigation in the candidate’s field. The Camargo Core Program welcomes both open-ended exploration, or more focused works and long-term research projects.

xchange & Network: during the residency, discussions are held regularly so that each Fellow has the opportunity to present the project or area of inquiry to the group. These project discussions serve as an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange. All Fellows are required to be present at these discussions. The Camargo Foundation’s Staff will provide formal and informal links with the region, meetings with professionals whose areas of expertise are relevant for the Fellow, opportunities to attend events, and the option of inviting outside professionals to project discussions. On a voluntary basis, Fellows have the opportunity to present their work within cultural and educational organizations in the region. Such events are conceived and organized by the Foundation in close consultation with the Fellow.
