Cassis Artist Residency 2017/2018: Open Call

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

We opened the doors of our Mediterranean villa in 2016 during the period from mid-November until mid-March, with the aim to accommodate international artists of all ages and disciplines. The Cassis Artist Residency is a non-profit project with the objective of giving artists the option of escaping city hassles and daily routine for the purpose of working in a peaceful and picturesque environment on their personal artistic projects.

What Makes this event different?

Artists have the opportunity to choose a project to work on (it can also be an ongoing project) and may stay for a period of 1 week to 4 months. We believe that artists benefit from having space and time to contemplate their work and to develop already existing ideas or to get inspired for future projects. Applications are accepted throughout the year.

Art Call for the Cassis Artist Residency. This is a cosy place in the French Riviera that welcomes international artists of all nationalities who are working in many different fields of artistic creation for a short or long period of stay.

Invited artists can choose the period of their stay as well as the projects that they will be working on during their residency. We're open to receive artists collectives. Artists are asked to give a presentation of their work and to participate actively in multiple discussions and events during their residency stay. We encourage collaboration between artists and we support the development of new projects. If an artist chooses to do so they may also work on an ongoing project.

The residency is located in Cassis, the picturesque village next to France’s Calanques National Park. Artists are housed in a beautiful Mediterranean villa with a garden, a view to the sea and Cap Canaille cliffs, and within walking distance to the Calanques National Park.

Two private rooms with double beds and two dormitories with bunk beds (one with 4 beds one with 6 beds) are provided. Possibility for maximum two people to share the 4 dorm and for max 3 people to share the 6 dorm.

Studios are not provided, but we can organize working spaces in the spacious living room and/or in the dormitories, as well as outdoors working places on the villa territory (garden, etc).
