Artist in Residence Programme

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Are you a fine artist, an applied artist, a musician, or a writer who requires one to three months in an environment conducive to serious research and experimentation?

DRAWinternational residency programme continues to expand notions of drawing.

The AiR programme aims to support artists in their professional practice/research and encourage creative exchange.
The centre organises events (exhibitions, open workshops and seminars/presentations) to promote it's activities and share creative experience and opportunities within the public domain.

We welcome proposals from artists of all nationalities and disciplines who use drawing as a significant dimension to their creative practice. This also includes writers, musicians and scientists.

Artists are allocated individual studio spaces to suit particular project requirements both at the "gendarmerie" and at the centre with unlimited access. Additional facilities include, flexible studio space for large scale works/installation/performance/music, technical workshop, etching press, top loading kiln and technical assistance.

Artists are accommodated in self catering apartments with private rooms at our recently acquired building "l'ancienne gendarmerie" and also at the centre.
The centre provides weekday evening meals for all artists and uses fresh local produce in order to create delicious menus that incorporate regional specialities.

Artists are encouraged to integrate and build a rapport within the community to maintain the genuine interest in DRAWinternational's activities and each artists' particular contribution.
